Beacon St., Washington Sq., 1887
Looking West on Beacon, Washington St. going north to the right.

From the 1887 photo series taken just before the widening of Beacon St., most likely by Augustine H. Folsom, a Boston photographer. This photo contains the mystery man, here sitting on the stone fence, who was posed in a number of the 1887 photos.
