In my earlier post on Federal Street I noted that the Boston Chamber of Commerce Building had replaced a block of commercial buildings on Federal Street but didn't have a good photo of the Chamber of Commerce Building. I found one in a 1930 pamphlet: Boston An Old City with New Opportunities published by the Chamber for Boston's terncentenary. In this post, the top photo shows the corner of Franklin and Federal Streets, looking up Federal Sreet at 92-116 Federal Street. The break in the Federal Street side is Channing Street, which was lost when the Boston Chamber of Commerce Building was built. Also lost were the two buildings on the far side of Channing Street. You will need to click on the Chamber of Commerce Building Photo to see the remaining buildings on the right margin.
Channing Street, Boston, 1845; from Federal Street to Congress Street; called Bury Street, from Long Lane to Atkinson Street, 1708; Barrack Lane, 1788; Berry Street, 1803; named Channing Street, 1845. [named for William Ellery Channing, who was minister of the Federal Street Church, which was located at the corner of Federal and Channing Streets]
