Description Centennial Celebration along Massachusetts Avenue in Lexington Center, April 19, 1875.

"This is a view looking up Massachusetts Avenue toward the Common and gives a good idea of the crowd and congestion which marked the day. The buildings are the ones between Clarke and Muzzey Streets, and the one in the distance is probably the Taylor now Litchfield house. "
