Today’s photo takes us to Dudley Street which is located in Roxbury, a neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts that is situated over three miles southwest of the center of the City. The image was taken in June of 1939, and it shows an overhead Rapid Transit track to Summer Street, which is about a quarter of a mile from the heart of the Metropolis.
Left-to-right in the scene, we see an air-conditioned movie theater where “A Nazi Spy” and “Alexander Graham Bell” were playing, and an interesting mix of vehicles one of which dates back to at least the early 1930s or before. One of the oldest is a Happy Home Bread Cakes Model “A” Ford sedan delivery just in front of the bus in the right-hand lane.
