"the Unitarian Steeple"

That Quentin has been travelling alongside the Charles River and that there’s a bridge and a Unitarian steeple at the spot where he alights provides clues which make it tempting to try to determine where he is. A likely candidate is Waltham, which was easily accessible by steam and electric railway in 1910 and had had a Unitarian parish church since 1839.
