Brookline News Agency - 1936
The Brookline News Agency, shown here in 1933, has been a popular location along Brookline Boulevard since the early part of the 20th century. If you were looking for a newspaper, magazines, candy or a variety of small items, Newsies was the place to go. Over the course of time, the business has had three different locations along Brookline Boulevard.
Newsies was first located at 806 Brookline Boulevard. Shortly afterwards, it moved to down to the next block, at 920 Brookline Boulevard, as shown in the photo above. In 1973, a fire destroyed the building and the business was forced to move to its final location, next to Mazza Pavilion, at 908 Brookline Boulevard. The business was eventually sold and is now known as the Boulevard News and Variety Store.
