Description

Two women and two men play mixed doubles on a grass court on the grounds of the Mahlon D. Spaulding Estate on Pope's Hill (now Daly Street) in Dorchester, Boston, while several spectators watch their game. There is a side view of the mansion, designed by architect Luther Briggs, Jr. Mahlon D. Spaulding was a banker, merchant, and businessman, who co-owned the sugar refining company of Nash, Spaulding & Company. The Archdiocese of Boston purchased the estate, and the Daly Industrial School occupied the mansion. In the 1950s, the mansion was demolished and residences were built on the property.
