Old photographs

10 Jun

Several years ago, I met the children of prior owners of my house. The Nelson family owned this house and one across the street (that has since been demolished) from 1925 until the 1980s. They ran both places as rooming houses (men only, less trouble). These lovely ladies gave me a big stack of photos which I am now scanning to preserve for posterity. Here are some of the Nelsons in front of my house (29 Mattoon Street) and the since-demolished (circa 1972-4) 26 Mattoon Street. More to come in the next few days.
