The Cambridge Historical Commission has been digitizing old photos, maps and documents, among them, this 1918 photo of the corner of Boylston Street (now JFK Street) and Mt. Auburn Street in Harvard Square, with this caption:
Lunch where we all ate. Connor. Betty (sic) known as Mothers, or greasy spoon. Cambridge. Mass. 40 & 32 Boughton St. 1918
Today, there's a Tasty Burger at that spot.
