The tracks are probably still there, now covered in asphalt

Installing trolley tracks

The folks at the Boston City Archives wonder if you can place this scene. See it larger.

Streets in Boston and across eastern Massachusetts are full of old trolley tracks.

Cambridge Street, Allston?
There aren't any business names to Google to try to figure it out, but the tracks on Cambridge Street in Allston have been paved over.

Hmm. Maybe this is where the A line split used to be? If so, I'd guess maybe this is looking down Brighton Ave?

There’s a street sign on the right that says Moore St, so this would be Southampton St looking west, a block or so north of where the South Bay Center is now.

You realize that they often asked people to stop moving when they took the photo.

Thanks for playing, folks! This photo shows Bennington Street at Moore Street in East Boston. It was taken in the 1930s.

I would have guessed Beacon Street in Brookline, west of Kenmore Square.
