The folks at the Boston City Archives wonder if you can place this scene. The other side of the building.

Riverside train runs behind this relic. It may now be the ubiquitous condo artifact of Boston

I don't think this is that. Doesn't look very similar today.

But going by the overall look of the area, I'm going with the greater Fort Point area.

That said, it also resembles the Baker Chocolate area, but I don't see why a city agency would be photographing that.

Just guessing, the reverse "WORTH" sign on the top of the building to the rear could be a good clue.

Couldn’t it also be “North”?

The building at far right has a sign on the roof -- visible letters appear to be ...WORTH... (in mirror image). Might be a clue.

Also, looking carefully at the two pictures, i think the second one is not the back of the building at the first photo. Rather, the photographer for the 2nd photo is standing in the driveway, in front of the large "garage door", and is looking to our left. At extreme right in the 2nd photo are the arched windows and the vines that you see to the left of that large door in the 1st photo. And just to the left of those arched windows in the 2nd photo are a window and a door in a second building -- which match the window and door in the building at extreme left of the 1st photo.

The visitor center at the Arnold Arboretum is my guess.

Thanks for playing, folks! These photos show the House of Correction property on East First Street in South Boston. The photo was taken in 1916
