Looking south from an elevated prospect between Pike and Union Streets, the pre-fire Buzby Mill – its peaked roof – it evident here near the scene’s center. Both the SLSER and “Ram’s Horne” tracks can be found far right at they approach the point where they nearly touch out of frame. The King Street Coal Wharf is far right, and on the horizon is Beacon Hill. The brick mass of the cracker factory is mostly hidden behind the frame structure this side of University Street. The date for this cityscape is certianly close to the moment of most of its destruction in 1889.
