FBG Project U-071

Source: FBG-System

Power Station for Blue Hill Street Railway

  • Canton, MA
  • < 1907

This job is known only from photos and captions in several FBG ads of 1906-07. Photos in Bricklaying System (pp.53-4) may be of this project but cannot be clearly identified.

Although the Blue Hill Street Railway was chartered in Jun, 1899 to run from Stoughton through Sharon, Canton and Milton and was a going concern for a number of years, with the notable Boston firm Stone & Webster among the owners, no specific reference to its powerplant or construction of any similar facility can be found.

Complete business records are held by Harvard, but are offline, offsite and voluminous.
