The North End once had a Jewish enclave. The photo above looks like it was taken in the early Twentieth Century and the legend said it was the corner of North Bennet and Salem Streets. But, I think that isn’t accurate. Can any of our urban sleuths who read NorthEndWaterfront.com identify the location?
At the time this photo was taken, Salem Street was the main shopping street in the North End followed by Hanover and Endicott Streets. How times have changed. Many of the North End storefronts have been turned into either restaurants or apartments.
