OK DZ, I'll be the one to swallow my pride and shamelessly admit I have no idea what/where that is. I would guess somewhere rather outlying from the Boston city core, like Jamaica Plain, Dorchester, Chelsea...

Maybe someone else will humble me and actually be able to identify it, but my 2 cents on this photo contest is that the further from the most common areas of Boston that the shot originates from, the more context should be provided in the photo. But who knows, maybe someone will yet nail this . And I'll be the first to admit striking the right balance is very tough. Let's keep 'em coming.

You nailed it. A rare instance of art deco industrial building in this area.Superior Nut 225 Monsignor OBrien Hwy Cambridge
Not cheating as far as I'm concerned, and you nailed it. Nice work!
Amazing find, thank you for sharing. That is an incredibly high-res view of the map. I concluded it wasn't related to the electrical station because the bigger parcel next to it, as shown on your map link, wasn't designated as such back then, even though today that is what occupies the parcel. Yet, from the high-res map you found, it seems that this structure pre-dated the other one and was an initial earlier piece of the electrical system. There was no legible label on the parcel in the poorer quality version of the map I was looking at.I believe this structure was a switching sub station for the Cambridge Electric Light Company.
