Residence of Daniel W. Russell, an area real estate developer. Built in 1888, no longer standing. His son, Frank A. Russell, graduated from Brookline High in 1886, spent time in Denver, married, then returned to Brookline in 1893. Both families then lived in the house. The younger Russell maintained a well-known real estate business in Brookline

In the distance on the right the mansion on the northwest corner of Beacon St. and Summit Ave. can be seen. In the distance on the left house(s) high on Corey Hill are seen. In the upstairs window there appears to be an adult holding a young child. The first listing for a coachman appears in the 1891 town directory - Patrick O’Neil.
