Goodspeed Livery Stable, 316 Washington St.
Just north of Harvard Square, opposite Holden St. Goodspeed’s stable remained a business here until the early 1930s, later run by Munroe Goodspeed’s son, Carl, and then other owners. The stable provided multiple services for both businesses and individuals. The S.S. Pierce Company boarded its horses and delivery wagons there, horse-drawn taxis could be called, horses were available for rent.

It is evident that Goodspeed’s rented space in this building. For example, from 1895 to 1901 this building was also the address of Dr. James Marshall, veterinary surgeon newly graduated from school. There is a sign visible in the photo for J. C. Barthelmes, Undertaker. John C. Barthelmes had been running a hairdressing business in Brookline for decades and, circa 1895, apparently expanded into undertaking. However, there is no record of his business at this address and the purpose of the sign remains unclear.
