Beacon St. & Marion, 1887
House of Austin W. Benton. Beacon St. looking east to the left, Marion St. to the right. Stone wall of Raymond Mansion visible across Beacon. The house, whose rear section was right at the edge of Beacon Street, was moved shortly after this photo was taken for the 1887 widening. It appears that the house was moved twice: first, it was rotated to face the apex of Beacon and Marion thus moving its extended tail sections away from Beacon to make room for the additional 110 feet of the widening; second, back to its original alignment but further down Marion where is still stands today.
