ca. 1891

Middle Street was first developed in the 1830s and 1840s as a residential street, then largely redeveloped in the 1880s and 1890s with four and five story commercial and light-industrial buildings like this one. Originally known as the Burke Block, it was home to the Burke Temperance Institute, one of many temperance societies in Lowell during the 19th century. By the early 20th century, a portion of the large A.G. Pollard Company department store complex was located here.
