Angier Residence // c.1905

This Tudor mansion in Waban Village was built around 1905 for George and Amelia Angier. George was the President of the Angier Chemical Company of Brighton. The company sold (among other things) Petroleum Emulsion, which was to be drank, serving as an anti-septic and soothing agent in the throat, stomach and intestines, it doesn’t sound safe to me! After their house was built, Mrs. Amelia Angier spent much of her time with charitable clubs and organizations. In 1916, before America joined WWI, Amelia started a fund and group to provide aid to the French who were wounded in the on-going war.
