Edward A. Huebener Brick Collection no. 64, Payson House
Huebener Brick no. 64, Payson House
Click image for more information
 Nothing much is known about the Paysonís. The caption on the back of the photograph says that the house was located at the back entrance to the cemetery.

The Edward A. Huebener collection of over 100 bricks originally collected by Mr. Huebener exhibits brick paintings of the houses from which the bricks came. The bricks have upon them painted scenes of (mostly) old Dorchester houses and landmarks. To see a list of all the bricks, choose the term Architecture in the list at the left of the screen and choose the first subsection -- the Edward A. Huebener Brick Collection and scroll to the bottom of that page to see icons for all the bricks.

 This photograph was possibly used as the model for the brick painting.

 The 1874 atlas shows the J.F. Payson house near intersection of Adams Street and what is now Milton Street. Granite Avenue crosses the yellow marsh at lower right. About Ĺ inch above that, Milton Street goes left to Adams. The name Payson is at the bottom left of the T in Dorchester and leads to a dot just to the bottom right of the T.
