    Thirded

    Although the street angles seem a bit odd to me to be Rozzie Square I have no better answer and I figure some day Adam posts a pic from his neck of the woods. :-)

    As for time - lots of electric poles - no cars although this is not downtown - more of a middle class neighborhood - so that could be why. I'd say 1895-1905.

    The Answer

    This is Central Sq in East Boston (Border St side). The photo was taken on June 1, 1905. Thanks for guessing, everyone!
