Description

The Boston Railroad Station was designed by Peabody & Stearns, built in 1873 and ceased to be a working station in 1899. During the years 1900-1910 it served multiple purposes including an exhibition space, roller skating rink and coliseum. The photograph was taken from Columbus Avenue looking in the direction of Berkeley Street. The building in the foreground was being used by the Boston Motor Company as a machine shop. Boston landmark buildings can be seen dimly in the background from left to right including Old South Church and Arlington Street Church.
