Boylston St.,Near Cypress St., January 22, 1913
Looking west toward Cypress St. It appears that sidewalks are about to be laid. From left to right:
  • 316 Boylston St. The tall brick building on the far left was constructed circa 1906 and housed the Elizabeth B. Hall Stables, for horses and carriages. The addition to the right was added a few years later for cars. Known as the Boylston Garage, it extended behind the existing house and had a separate entrance road on the other side of the house. The main brick stable is still in use as a car barn at an auto dealership.
  • The house of George S. Cushing, also at 316 Boylston St., torn down in 1914 by the owner of the garage.
  • The house of Alex Strain, in the rear, at 144 Cypress St.
  • The house of Annie C. Crocker at 136 Cypress St.
  • Cypress St.
