Longwood Ave. Trolley, 1891
This rare photo shows the trolley traveling westward having just passed St. Paul St. on its way to Coolidge Corner. It is approaching the house of Charles Dudley at 60 Longwood Ave. Dudley, who had recently purchased the property, would soon move his house to the west and sell the expanded corner property, vacant in the photo, to Jacob Bates who constructed his house there.

This trolley line would soon be eliminated and the tracks, which only ran on the north side of Longwood Ave., removed.
