When I was in Boston, I lived on Garrison Street in Newton, just above BC. I never did the research to figure out if it was named for Bill.

I was just recently introduced to William Lloyd Garrison in Tom Ryan's book, following atticus, which I can recommend even though I haven't finished it yet. Thanks for your photo and all the info.
