Does anyone know when Best's of West St., Boston were in business selling furniture, fabrics and carpets?

Later addition: My friend and genealogist, Wendy Parkinson, has provided the following information:

James Fawcett Best was a cabinet maker at 142 West Street in 1882, 1892, 1905 and 1913. His third son, Charles worked as a cabinet maker in the family business. Charles was killed in 1916, whilst serving with the Lincolns. An Alfred Best was later a furniture dealer at the same premises (A&J Best and Partners). James Fawcett Best died in 1937.

St Botolph's Church ('Boston Stump') is in the background of the photo.
