Description

This slide has a label that reads "Hassam Block Pavement, Laid in 1910 by, Simpson Bros. Corporation Boston Mass."

The city street location is unknown but most likely the northeastern U.S.

What looks like a trolley platform is on the left and an interesting building with a clock tower is on the right.
