View toward Chapel St. from the Muddy River, 1909.
Looking north toward Chapel St. from the Muddy River just east of the Longwood Ave. bridge. In the foreground is the carriage house of the Richards estate, location of the present-day Longwood Towers. On the left, in the far distance, is the rear of the house at 287 Kent St., still standing. This photo shows the completion of the recent pipe-laying project conducted on the slopes in the foreground.
