    If that address on the door is '101' then you could restrict the search to the very first lot on various roads.

    Andy The 1950 map has an inset in the lower left hand corner that goes further east - I think it was map 43. GK

    Gary, which Sanborn map did you use? The 1937 and 1937-50 online editions only map East Trinity as far as the 400 block.

    Moe It looks like, from the old Sanborn maps, you are right - nicely done! The house on the lot now is certainly ~1920s-1930s vintage, so I had assumed that it was original to that location- I wonder where it came from. It's a double-tiered mystery photo! GK

    This is next door to my grandparents' house (Charlie & Virgie Bass, 503 E Trinity Avenue). That's my grandfather's Buick in the driveway.

"New Red Cross Building" - 05.24.57

This house was either demolished or removed in the 1960s, and, oddly, replaced by another house of only slightly newer vintage. Where the latter house came from is anyone's guess.
