Description

This is the same view from 370 Albany Street looking south in Boston, Massachusetts as shown in Kirchin040.  However, this photo was taken on September 17, 1917. 

The street has now been nicely paved. 

A clearer shot of the building in the right foreground lets us know that it is the location of the George W. Macauley Company.  According to a 1916 Boston city directory, that business manufactured posts, rails, and balusters. An ad in 1918 said the company manufactured "Builders' Finish and Fine Cabinet Work" and its office and salesroom was located at 385 Albany Street.

On the left you can barely make out the '...Bogart & Son' sign.  This is for IH Bogart and son (William M.) who had a carpentry business.
