Still the same building. Altered in the late 80's to be lab space and a drug store on the first floor. The Mobil to the left is Tasty Burger now. This is the corner of Jersey and Boylston.
First time I have noticed that the Dorchester Yacht Club used to support an oil tank.Savin hill historic head house from 1927, looks exactly like the shawmut head house that is still there today.
The even older head house from 1923.
Cool pic. I'm thankful someone leaned out of the the Hoffman Building to get this shot. I've never seen a before from that angle.
Interesting to note that this North Station demolition was happening at the same time the old Central Artery elevated highway was being dismantled, and the new Big Dig highway tunnel being built. I can see this because the Green Line, as it curves onto Causeway Street, is on the temporary elevated structure with the bright green steel framing built during the Big Dig project.

We keep it like we're trying to reassure ourselves that we didn't completely eliminate an entire neighborhood species.

It's the architectural equivalent of a thylacine (which would much cooler to see than that brick pimple).
Hey, 1976, the year I got married (and still am). Back then I had hair pretty much like the guy on the billboard.
