Description View from Belfry Hill, westerly toward Concord Hill. (Same image as Worthen.19.210.)

"The picture must have been taken about 1895 (1882?). At extreme right is Mr. Greeley's house (back) next is Mr. Webster's (side). Above them is the Catholic Church. At center-right is Mr. Tucker's with barn - then some of the houses near Parker Street. At extreme left is number 24 Parker Street. Along the hillside are the Houses on Stratham Road, then, at left-centre, Mr. Kimball's and in the upper left corner the house at corner of Cedar Street. No Forest Street extension or Belfry Terrace for all this land - and those two barns were part of what was earlier "Belfry Hill Stock Farm" conducted by Mr. Blinn who lived in Mr. Greeley's house."
