Collins and Dyer, Provisions, 5 Harvard Sq.
This is the one-story building in the middle of what was known as the “Rooney Block” and still stands today. Henry Collins and Thomas H. Dyer were partners at this location from about 1873 – 1877. Dyer left to work at the provisions store of Hartwell & Skinner in Boston's New Faneuil Hall Market and, by 1883, had returned to Brookline to open his own store in the nearby Panter Building. When Dyer left, this store became Henry Collins & Co., Provisions.

In the window, the reflection of the Seaman’s Co. building, situated directly across Washington St. on the northwest corner with Davis Ave , is clearly visible.
