This house, located near the intersection of Route 9 and the Massachusetts Turnpike in Framingham, was recently bulldozed by developers. Another view can be seen in "Woman in period costume..." photograph above.

Thank you for providing this updated information about the house pictured here. I have updated the record accordingly. I have also edited the record for the other photograph you referenced.
