Brookline's First Plumber - 1905
This building, in the rear of the lot at 1033 Bayridge Avenue, was the first home of "The Brookline Plumber," a local business that has been in operation in Brookline for over 100 years. In this 1905 photo, the home doubled as the family residence. Eventually the business moved to its present location at 613 Brookline Boulevard.
Note the gentlemen plumbers in their suits and derbys, and the horse that was used to pull the work wagon. These men are the direct descendants of the Scheuering family, who have owned and operated the Brookline business since its inception.
