Latest in the series. Retired photographer Frank Siteman has taken photos of places downtown, and your job is to guess where they were taken.  

If you know the answer, send an email to editor@winchesternews.org and put How well in the subject line.  

Last time was a bit confusing but we had only two winners. Michael Arwe and Paul Schlichtman guessed it’s above Winchester Pharmacy on the corner of Church and Main Streets. Others guessed it was the White Block which is on Mt. Vernon St.

Town Archivist Ellen Knight provided Winchester News with the historical record of the two buildings. “Samuel Bartlett White owned 568-572 Main Street, along with the White Block as a commercial investment property. White was a prominent figure in Winchester, descended from the Richardson family which first settled in the area in the mid-1600s. White was born in Winchester, still referred to as South Woburn, on Jan. 14, 1827. He attended primary school at the Warren Academy in Woburn and was working for a Winchester grocery by 1841. In 1846 he began working for the Boston & Lowell Railroad, where he stayed until 1859. After this he operated a grocery in Boston until 1865, at which point he established a leather and glove business under the firm name White Bros.”

 See last week’s to refresh your memory. How Well is taking a vacation for a week and will return on April 17.
