It's the one with the paired Ionic columns, not the one with the dome...

I’m no historian, but I’d bet my house it wasn’t a Santander Bank when the photo was taken.

Nice. It's really cool to peek around the corner onto Meridan St and see the EBSB building facade, looking the same as it does in the photo. Mid 1920s?

Not the santander building that has single pillars where building in archives has double
The hint is 1848 east but I cant figure out more than that

Thanks for playing, folks! Maverick Square is correct! This shows construction on the East Boston Tunnel in Maverick Sq in 1922

But, the building at the left of the picture is the East Boston Savings Bank.
