Frost Coal Company
Frost Coal Company

 The Frost Coal Company was located at 488 Neponset Avenue, the last lot on the left before stepping from the bank of the river onto the bridge to Quincy. The photograph is reported to have been taken about 1870. The atlases indicate that the property was owned by John Foster, so Frost must have been a tenant.

Readers' Comments
 Later Frost would become part of Metropolitan Coal and Oil, a company that later occupied the site. The site is now a health club.
Metropolitan was owned by Bill Sullivan, who also was co-owner of Patriots Football, along with Dan Marr, and another man, forgot his name, owner of 7up of Boston.

I worked for both Metro and 7up.
