No. 7353: Ashmont Station
Postcard #7353

Scan of a photo published on a calendar issued by Cole's Pharmacy, 1876 Dorchester Avenue, corner Dracut St., Ashmont. The calendar for 1901 states that the station was erected 1872, torn down 1895. It seems to be at the site that was later occupied by the Englewood Diner. The train at that time traveled in a gully. Later a cap was added so that the tracks are now in a tunnel.
