Today’s Top 5

Hall was demolished in 1959

... today the skyscraper at 111 Huntington Avenue occupies part of the former building’s location - via Lost New England

I bet the street sweeper hated seeing the horseless carriage get popular.

Identical perspectives

The 1903 and 1906 photographs were taken from the same spot and captured the same amount of building and street. The utility pole at far right in 1903 is not there in 1906. However, the ivy is doing nicely.

Click to embiggen. The relationship between the utility pole to the building in both years confirms the camera was set up in the same spot. The building peeking over the roof in 1903 is gone in 1906.

[That's not a separate building -- it's on the roof. - Dave]
