Beacon St. Looking East Toward Tappan St., 1887
Eugene Knapp house in the distance, Tappan St. just beyond that, his apple orchard in the foreground. Knapp was financially involved in the impending widening of Beacon St. and donated some of this land to the project.

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