From left to right:
  • 655/657 Washington St., partial view, house still standing
  • Gasometer. This was the last of four gasometers built by The Brookline Gas Co. to store gas to run gas street lamps. This one was built in 1872 and demolished in 1984. By 1917, it had been converted to a succession of purposes. Here it is being used by a service station.
  • 637 Washington St., still standing after major renovations.
