Dorchester Illustration no. 2238

Today’s illustration is a photo of the stable owned by Holllis P. Gallup located on Welles Avenue opposite the entrance to Samoset Street. Published in the 1905 Yearbook of the Dorchester Gentlemen’s Driving Club.

Although many houses on Ashmont Hill had their own carriage houses with space for horse and coachman, others did not.  Many property owners on Ashmont Hill and elsewhere did not keep horses at home.  Instead they used the services of local stables for boarding their horses.
