Tight squeeze. Boston's South End, 1932. I wonder if it's under the Boston Elevated?

The Type 4 probably had a few scratches. The El column didn't budge, so the auto took 99.9 percent of the damage.

The next stop is Washington. Change for Forest Hills Trains on the Winter St. Platform, and Everett Trains on the Summer St. Platform. This is an Ashmont train, change for Braintree at Columbia.
