A late 1800’s image of Edward Everett Square

Dorchester remained an autonomous town of the Commonwealth until its annexation to Boston in 1870. In the 1800’s Edward Everett Square was still known as “Five Corners”, a major community crossroads. Notice the horse drawn carriage and trolley in the right of the image.
