I checked my old street-map book, and the only Camden Street mentioned is in
"Boston Proper" meaning Downtown Boston.
It crosses Tremont Street in the general vicinity Northeastern University
and Symphony Hall.
In my grandmother's research, I found out that the "Chardon Street home"
originally started out on Tremont Street - but I think closer to the
"Downtown Crossing" area. And, I think I found my grandmother at Age 10
in the Boston Female Orphans Asylum, and I think that was also on or near
Tremont Street. In current terms, she seems to have lived between
Boston Common and the Government Center from Age 10 to Age 20.
