• This view looks west down Quincy Street. The photo was probably taken in 1889 as the steeples of St. Patrick's Catholic Church (dedicated in 1889 after several years of construction) and St. Anne's Catholic Church (demolished later in 1889) are both seen in the distance. Partially visible on the far right is Ben Wieder's harness shop. The next building down housed, among other things, George H. Nichols pharmacy. See MS042-999-T-019 for a front view of it. The third building on the right is Edward Ryan's general store. Across the street from Ryan's (third building from the left) is Peter Ruppe & Sons general store. Although the facades are different, most of the buildings seen here on Quincy Street's 100 block still stand today.
