Description

An exterior view of the mercantile building that houses several businesses and lodgings at 2700 to 2714 Washington Street at the intersection with Dale Street in Roxbury, Massachusetts. The photographer, Henry L. Hadcock, included his own pharmacy at 2704 Washington Street in the photograph. Robert McCullagh owned the grocery and tea shop at 2706-2708 Washington Street. At 2714, Henry Towle operated his provisions store. The building is three stories high and designed in the Second Empire style with a Mansard roof. All of the first floor stores have awnings. Two horse-drawn wagons are parked in front of McCullagh's. Children, workers in aprons, and a dog standing on the sidewalk look toward the camera.
