LAST WEEK’S ANSWER
The oriel window in last week’s clue is on 131 Beacon Street which was built in 1861 as a single family home. It was converted to a lodging house in 1948 and then to a Fisher College dormitory in the 1960s. The college attempted to change the use to classrooms in 1975 but was denied zoning approval by the Board of Appeal. It is listed as a 14 room, 33 bed dormitory in a 2010 inspection.
