Dorchester Illustration 2231 Shawmut Station

2231 Westerly exposure to Shawmut Railroad Station, March 1926

Dorchester Illustration no. 2231

This view from 1926 shows that the old Shawmut Station faced the tracks, which were at grade.  Two years later the tracks were put below ground, and a new brick station house replaced this wooden building.
