Hello, Retro Boston Lovers!
Well...Andrew is the winner!!
Perfect marks on his work. Each building is marked and named correctly.
Andrew is our star today!!
I love this mid- 50's photo because, if you look back at the unmarked copy, you can see that Jordan Marsh is building the sky bridge that will connect the 1950 building with the annex buildings. The construction on top of the 1950 building added a new level and that was done on the annex side as well to support the bridge. I think the annex may have been a few feet shorter causing the need for stepping down about three steps as you came off the bridge into the annex on the various floors above Avon Street.
Thanks to all who tried!!!
