Beacon St. Looking West From Coolidge Corner, 1887
Looking west on Beacon St. The water trough is at corner of Harvard St. in front of the Coolidge & Brother Store. Across the street is the Andrew J. Harrington house which was moved to Longwood Ave. after the widening of Beacon St. To its right is the house of Glidden W. Joy.

From the 1887 photo series taken just before the widening of Beacon St., most likely by Augustine H. Folsom, a Boston photographer.
