No. 10280: Conness Estate, River Street
Postcard #10280

The Honorable John Conness (1822-1909), a retired U.S. Senator from California, is on the far right; family and friends assist in haying the field in front of the family home. Notice the horse-drawn hayrick on the left with the children standing on its top. Today, this is the site of the Mattapan Public Health Commission; the Women's Educational and Industrial Union uses the Conness House for Horizons, a safe house for battered women and their children.
