Doyle's Cafe Memorabilia

Jamaica Plain Historical Society

or
Doyle's Cafe was a popular community gathering space located at 3484 Washington Street in Boston's Jamaica Plain neighborhood. Doyle's opened its doors in 1882 and grew from a one-room Irish pub to a three-room bar and restaurant that was host to both locals and tourists alike. It was also known as a favorite gathering place for both local and national politicians. Doyle's poured its last pint on October 26th, 2019, closing its doors for the last time at midnight.

The Doyle's Cafe Memorabilia collection features the photographs, news clippings, ephemeral materials, and other decorations that hung on Doyle's walls during its historic 137-year run.

The physical items shown here were sold by Doyle's Cafe through public auction on November 6, 2019. Jamaica Plain Historical Society is steward of the digital images.
