Corey Hill, circa 1888
Looking from Aspinwall Hill at the southwest corner of Corey Hill. Behind the trees on the left is Washington Sq., still undeveloped. In the foreground on the far right, on Washington St., is the gasometer. At the top of the hill is the house of Peder Olsen, at 141 Summit Ave.

The widening of Beacon St. has just been completed. Eben Jordan, of the Jordan Marsh department store owns most of the land pictured and is beginning development. He will soon erect a large mansion here.

Corey Hill, circa 1890
Looking from Aspinwall Hill across the still undeveloped Washington Sq. to the southwest corner of Corey Hill. In the foreground is the large mansion of Eben Jordan, still under construction here (the stone wall along Beacon St. and the stone pillars which bracket the entrance to Summit Path, the latter still standing, have not been added yet). Jordan, one of the principles of the Jordan Marsh department store, was developing much of the land visible here after the recent widening of Beacon St. Just to the right of the Jordan mansion is a horse-drawn cart carrying construction materials. Behind that is #5 Mason Terrace, under construction, and behind that is #12 Mason Terrace, both are still standing.
