Dorchester Illustration of the Day no. 1723
The Dorchester Gas Light Company operated storage gasometers at various locations in Dorchester. The 1874 atlas shows one at Adams Corner approximately where the Eire Pub is located, one at Glover’s Corner approximately where dBar is located and one approximately where the NStar facility is located today on Massachusetts Avenue.
The gasometers were huge inflatable balloons inside structural supports.
