Apart from the 3 Front Streets listed on the website, there was a fourth
Front Street listed in the 1902 "List of Streets, Etc. in Boston."

"Front street, East Boston (proposed);
from Porter street (extended) to Wood Island Park,
parallel with and next east from B., R. B. & L. R.R. Boston, Revere Beach and Lynn Railroad;
formerly from Porter street (extended) to Coleridge street;
portion included in Wood Island park;
portion northeast of Wood Island park not now shown."
