WBZ radio leaving Soldiers Field Road

I've always wondered where WBZ(A)'s transmitter was in the Boston area
before the Boston station became the primary. Millis was inaugurated in
1931, but where was the Boston transmitter before that?

Was WBZ always at 1170 Soldiers Field Road? Their transmitter site was
originally in Springfield, and for a while in Millis.

WCRB had either a transmitter, a studio, or both at 750 South Street in
Waltham from 1948 until its sale to Greater Media in 2006 (yes, Nassau's
WCRB also used the Waltham location, but that was a different station).
