403 Oakwood, 1970s.

403 Oakwood was built around 1910, and for many years was the home of JF Rogers, a Southern Railway engineer. (The fact that the Southern Railway passenger depot was located at the intersection of Dillard St. and the railroad tracks may have made this part of a Durham a favorable location for employees of that railroad company.) The carved bargeboard in the picture is identical to the one on the one-story 401 Oakwood, next-door.

The house was torn down between 1994 and 1999, and is now part of an L-shaped yard for the house at 407 Carlton, around the block.


403 Oakwood, 2007 (yes, 2007 - accidentally set the camera on black and white. Not tryin' to get all ahtsy or anything.)
