The scene in 2014:


A similar view to the photos in this post, these photos show how Beacon Street has changed in the past 127 years.  Not a whole lot of dramatic changes have occurred; the street is now a paved, four lane thoroughfare, but the Public Garden is still there on the left, and many of the rowhouses on the right are still there, including the granite ones from 1828 on the far right of the photos.
