You are all correct.  I meant Northeastern and haver corrected the posting.   Truth is, in the some total of 19-20 years spent in the Boston-Cambrtidge area, I never once was inside Northeastern U.  Inside Symphony Hall, not far away, maybe 1000 times.  But I did hear excellant organ recitals on the very beautiful Aeolian Skinner organ at Northwestern (Alice Millard Chapel?).  The firm that I worked for 1957-1971, including three years at the Downerrs Grove Office, had been the acoustical advisors, although I was not directly involved. 

Thanks for the important correction.

Other photo and information contributions, comments, and questions requested.

Great picture.

The Cities Service sign in the background is in Kenmore Square, close to Fenway Park. The famous CITGO sign replaced it in 1965. 

Yikes. I remember when it changed!

(Wow. That's a Crosley station wagon!)
