In the Rockland  Standard of March 20 of that year we read: “Mr. B. F. Richardson is moving from his  quarters on Vernon Street to the fine new building for his boarding house business  on Union Street.     Over the years, as noted before, Babe Ruth ate and drank here as did John L.  Sullivan and many national and local political figures like Ray Flynn, Bobby and  Rhonda Nyman & Senator Morrissey have been spotted here along with numerous  other celebrities like Bob Sullivan of Sullivan Tire.  Calvin Cooldige delivered a  speech from the porch   It was also rumored James Michael Curley spoke here  . . .  though it is not known what he said!
