Another wooden house getting an extra floor. Are there fewer demolitions & more (substantial) alterations these days, at least on smaller parcels? At any rate, this naff, extra-floor-on-wooden house stuff is getting to be a thing.
An 80s tax photo shows the original structure looking much the same as it does today,
but in the 40s it's quite different. There's a store on the first floor, the old, original cornice is still there, and wild, two-tone asphalt shingles cover the building. Early twentieth-century psychedelic!
In July of 1915 four-year-old Eleanor Maggie fell from a fire-escape back of the house with barely a bruise to show for it.
