Listed under "Janet Durham" in the 1938 city directory; read the remarkable narrative of Tempe Herndon Durham, who was likely an elder relative.
I have taught for years using this woman's 1937 narrative and authoritatively noting her "1312 Pine Street" address, but not really knowing where it was. I pointed out urban renewal in a general area with a supposition that the house was torn down 50 years ago. I was stunned to see Tempe Herndon's name on the heading; imagine my shock at looking back at her Great Depression WPA image and seeing the same double columns that are on 1312 S. Roxboro Street. Another serendipitous moment!
