Hartley (large carpet store in Boston), and James M. Crosby. Crosby was a sporting character, many very fine horses. He was presumed to be state agent of the Louisiana lottery. All buildings burned October 11, 1894 (or 1893?), loss of $60,000 (horses). Picture taken in the 1880s when Berry owned the place."
