This morning, Paul Barrett sent a picture of the missing building, apparently in the process of being demolished.
The picture above had to have been taken early in the 1970s but after 1970, when the Front Street-Parade Hill-Lower Warren Street Historic District was first added to the National Register of Historic Places. In the picture, the two buildings on the northeast corner of Warren and Front streets, which were still there in 1970, are gone, and beyond the Washington Hose firehouse, almost unrecognizable with its flat roof, Hudson Terrace appears to be in the final stages of construction.
This aerial photograph shows the row of buildings at the end of Warren Street as it was in 1970.
