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

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: IMAGE(https://s23.postimg.org/sxkj0qmif/roof.jpg)

Is a safer version - railings along the roof edge near access opening. Impressive!
