History of the Comfort Station via Historic Boston Inc:

The Comfort Station is a one-story stucco and tile “mission style” building that was built as a convenience station in 1912 to support the expanding streetcar system in Boston. It was designed by Dorchester architect William H. Besarick, who also designed the nearby municipal building at the corner of Columbia Road and Bird Street, as well as many triple-decker residences in the area.

The Comfort Station lies on what was once part of the Dorchester North Burying Ground, which is listed in the State and National Register of Historic Places and within the cemetery’s Boston Landmark designation.

    It says woman, immigrant and black owned. but is the woman a lesbian or a trans woman, because if she isn’t I wouldn’t eat here and now I’m triggered and have no appetite.
