(Below in italics is from the 2004 East Durham National Register listing; not verified for accuracy by this author.)

Sidney Webster House. 1 and 1/2 story side-gable brick Tudor Cottage with a gabled entrance wing, 6-over-6 sash windows, and a gabled 2-bay porch with brick posts and an original metal railing. Not on 1937 SM. 1940 CD: Sidney R. Webster owner/occupant (truck driver).

Garage. Ca. 1935. Front-gabled garage with German siding.

Sidney Webster, depending on what year's city directory you are looking at, is listed as being employed as a truck driver, and also employed by City Quarry. I imagine he most likely worked as a truck driver at City Quarry.  In the 1950s he worked as a machine operator at American Tobacco. His wife Nannie Veazey Webster worked at Liggett and Myers Tobacco.  The Websters lived in this home for numerous decades.
