Postcard Wash at Arboretum Road c 1900.jpg

Bucolic Roslindale c. 1900

We recently came across this wonderful postcard of Roslindale. The view is of Arboretum Road from Washington Street;

the bridge is just a few blocks down from the infamous Bussey Street Bridge. Two children are walking away from the Arboretum, where they may have been enjoying a beautiful day before heading home. Cattle are grazing on the left.

Below is a photo from 2022 of the same sight, now industrialized, along with a map to orient you.

Puritan Ice Cream Company is on the corner of Washington Street and Arboretum Road.
