Nice angle, Ken. I forgot about Baker Chocolate. You can see the storage silos in the frame.and the trace of an access siding. The plant was served by the New Haven which evidently had some access alongside the Mattapan line, it being originally a "steam" railroad right of way. I understand that Baker had their own private cars and they also needed coal for the power plant (stack visible). The plant closed in 1965 and is now a condominium complex
