Richmond Court Apartments, 1211-1217 Beacon St.
The car has been tentatively identified as a Locomobile. Early town directories from 1904 – 1911 listed all automobile owners. Augustus Barring Henley, president of the Henley-Kimball Co., automobile distributors, was one and lived in this building. In the December 18, 1912 issue of the Boston Evening Transcript Henley placed ad for his personal 1912 Locomobile. It was listed as “seven-passenger” so it was probably not the automobile shown in the photo but it establishes him as the likely owner of this car. Its listed cost of $4800 was a substantial amount of money at the time.

A horse and carriage can be viewed in the driveway.
