And the winner is....
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!!! Keep visiting!!
Boston born, Brookline raised Retro Boston Cultural Historian and very eager to get as many memories, photos and newspaper adverts of the once grand stores of the Downtown Boston we all knew and loved. Also I am very busy researching Boston area churches of the past that have since closed or merged into others. All who remember are welcome to contact me with their thoughts, memories and photos to add to any of my blogs.
