View of the corner of Somerset Street and Howard Street, Boston, Mass., 1912

PC001.02.01.USMA.0340.7320.001 (RS18228)

Description

At the corner of Somerset and Howard Streets in Boston, a man is standing next to the closed Congress Lunchroom. The street sign on the side of the building indicates that this is Ward Six. In the window of the clothing store of George W. Watson, at 40 Howard Street, a sign proclaims a sale as the building is to be torn down. A part of the façade of the Howard Athenaeum, at 34 Howard Street, can be glimpsed next to the Howard Hairdressing Parlor. Several men sit on crates on the sidewalk, and a boy, wearing knickerbockers, stands next to them.
