Centre Street Looking South, Jamaica Plain

ca. 1985


Looking south along Centre Street in the mid 1980's and in 2013. Kelleher's supermarket and the Boston Five Bank are at center in the older shot, replaced by Tedeschi's and Citizen's Bank today.  Citizen's aquired the old Boston Five in 1993.  A clock is seen in both photographs.  It was installed in 1930 and reinstalled in 2008 in a ceremony featuring Mayor Tom Menino.
