Harvard Square, Brookline Village, circa 1880
The one-story building, still standing in the center of the complex known as the "Rooney Block", houses Henry Collins & Co., Provisions. To the right, the store of Mayo & Paine Stoves became, circa 1883, the Paine Brothers when Mr. Mayo left the business and Henry K. Paine went into business with his brother, Isaac. The store of James Rooney, Boots and Shoes, is on the far right.
