The house of the John Wales family from circa 1879 until shortly after his death in 1900, no longer standing. Located on the northwest corner of Carlton St. which is just to the right in the photo. One of the two cement posts that bracket the driveway, visible in the photo, remains today. John Wales was the president of the John Wales & Co., a Boston firm that distributed small-form steel products (screws, springs, wire, brackets etc.).
