Physical description:
1 glass negative: b&w ; 5 x 7 in
Type:
Glass negatives
Place:
United States of America, Massachusetts, Norfolk County, Brookline
Massachusetts
Brookline
Date:
1897
Notes:
The image appears to have been taken from an upstairs window or the roof of the Sears family home at 2 Charles Street (now 1269 Beacon Street). The old S. S. Pierce building (originally the Coolidge & Brother store), seen in the center of the image, was replaced in 1898-99 by a new structure (shown in other images in MA126), hence the assigned date of 1897 for this image. The tall building in the distance is the Colchester, while the building with a conical roof in the middle distance is the Mary J. Wason Building.
