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."

I just came up with a reference to "Fore Street" in an 1801 Boston Newspaper. The address on Fore Street is "opposite William's Arch" which I know I've heard of before but isn't showing up in my usual reference books. Any idea where this might be?
