Anthony Sammarco in his book Dorchester Then and Now dates the view as 1895 and says the stores along Washington Street are, from right to left, Miss Cooks Creamery & Bakery, the Badlam Cabinetmaking shop (later Talbot), the large John C. Talbot grocery store, and Clay Meat Market. Today (2005), a Lil Peach store, Spukies n Pizza, and a parking lot occupy this site.
