Harvard St. near Allston Border, circa 1903
Looking northeast from Corey Hill this is a rare photo of some of the older farms and estates around north Harvard St. Harvard St. bisects the photo from left to right. Below Harvard St., center left, is Kenwood St. and center right is Columbia St., both newly created. Above Harvard St., in the center of the photo, is the large house on the estate of James F. Ayer. Bordering the estate on the right, is Thorndike St. The open land in the center of the photo was the farm of David Sullivan Coolidge whose house can be viewed on Harvard St.

45/47 Kenwood St., built in 1903, is the final house in the photo on the north side of the street. #50, built in 1904, is not yet present.
