Dorchester Illustration of the Day, November 17, 2009
Robinson School
Click image for more information
 Dorchester Illustration of the Day no. 1190

Hartman's card of the Robinson School is the only image we have of the school at present. I suspect that the City Archives has a photo, so contacting them will be my next assignment.

Postcard. Caption on front: The Robinson School, Dorchester, Mass. Photo by J.V. Hartman. Postally unused. On verso: Pub. by J.V. Hartman & Co., Boston, Mass. Series 64. Ca. 1910

The school was located just north of Fields Corner on Robinson Street backing up to Ronan Park. The school first appears in the 1898 atlas with the name Robinson Street School. When the 1904 atlas was issued, the school had the name Benjamin J. Cushing School. Does anyone know when it was torn down?
