128 Boylston St., circa 1875
This is a picture of the house after the regrading of Boylston St. Richard Hills was a jeweler and watchmaker in Boston who later went into business with his brother. Between 1874 and 1876 he produced some of the most important and iconic photographic records of Brookline Village. The pictures were taken as stereoviews but little is currently known about this work.
