Question: Can you help with a couple abbreviations I found in a 1900 Boston City Directory at NEHGS.  What were the B. & L. R. R. and B. R. B. & L. R. R. for railroad designations.

 

Answer: The B. & L. R. R. - Boston & Lowell Railroad, and B. R. B. & L. R. R. is the Boston, Revere Beach & Lynn Railroad.
