Brookline Village, circa 1877
Between Kent St. and Andem Pl. there are three buildings, two visible here, known as the Rooney Block. From left to right:
  • Robert Hamilton, Dry and Fancy Goods, at #9 Harvard Sq.
  • A. A. Cheney, Watchmaker and Jeweler, at #6 Harvard Sq.
  • Collins and Dyer, Provisions, #5 Harvard Sq. Thomas H. Dyer left soon after this photo was taken to work at the provisions store of Hartwell & Skinner in Boston's New Faneuil Hall Market and, by 1883, had opened his own store in the nearby Panter Building. When Dyer left, this store became Henry Collins & Co., Provisions.
