Cleveland Circle Southwest, 1941
Looking southwest from the old Reservoir Lane at the raised aqueduct that runs along Reservoir Rd. The house is 171 Crafts Rd. Visible in front of it is a waste weir of the Cochituate Aqueduct which ran along Reservoir Rd. to the Brookline Reservoir on Boylston St. The waste weir is still standing. The aqueduct was not used after 1951.
