 The photographer must have been standing on the Milton side of the Neponset River looking directly at the building labeled Hotel in the map. The map indicates that the owner is Seth Mann 2nd. The wooden buildings were demolished at a later date, and the administration building of the Walter Baker Chocolate Company was erected on the site in 1919.
Map: "Scan from 1889 Bromley Atlas, plate 29"
