The folks at the Boston City Archives wonder if you can place this scene. See it larger.
I believe the address is 132 Marginal Street in East Boston across from Piers Park. The gas street lamp and fire hydrant are still there. https://goo.gl/maps/L9r1qnypxWx
I wonder if it's the same street lamp.
Here is a blog post about the neighborhood of Jefferies Point in East Boston. The second picture in the post is of the same ally way with another gas street lamp.
Nicely done. I love that the little roof door hasn't changed:
Amazing before and after photo, these old East Boston wooden structures are still standing after decades of wind,rain,snow,, sun .
Is a safer version - railings along the roof edge near access opening. Impressive!
Thanks for playing, folks! 132 Marginal Street is correct! The date is April 17, 1909
This is just so cool. I'm going to look next time I'm there
