Looking north from Harvard Sq. The unifying element of this photo is the path of Harvard St. It runs from the 4 o’clock position on the right (alongside St. Mary’s Church) to the 10 o’clock position on the left (the brick building at 152-158 Harvard St.) where it curves upwards to the steeple of the Harvard Congregational Church at the top of the photo.
