The image appears to have been taken from an upstairs window or the roof of Thomas W. Sears's family home at 2 Charles Street (now 1269 Beacon Street). The new S. S. Pierce Building was constructed in 1898-99, replacing an earlier one seen in MA126012. In the center of the image is a partial view of the James Whitney house, at the corner of Pleasant Street and Beacon Street.
