Re: Flickr Finds

Love these photos, thanks!

I can't place these two. Charlestown for both or is the second one on the Chelsea side?

Re: Flickr Finds

I'm confused. What's the thing in the middle? Was this taken down, or did they add floors around it? Was this done originally or years later. Photo is circa 1922.

Re: Flickr Finds

The caption for this says it's on Westland Ave. Anyone have an idea of which side, location? Sometime 1855-1895.
