I love these lamps and I stumble across them in JP from time to time. They are the ones documented in the other website that you referenced.


Please let me know if any other gas lamps are discovered in Jamaica Plain; I'll add them to the web site. I do a periodic re-inventory to make sure the "known" JP gas lamps are still there. The one at Paul Gore Terrace was recently moved across the street to make way for new construction. It was certianly nice to see the one at Union Ave. get repaired rather than removed when a new house went up there. There are two more flanking the entrance to the Boston Police K-9 unit on Allendale Road.

There are also several of this Boulevard-type lamp hidden in the alleys of the Mission Hill Triangle between Huntington Ave. and Tremont St. on the flat of Mission Hill, and a few more up the hill off of Calumet Street.
