    I love these old advertisements with the address and the house because I love to go on Google streetview and see if it is still there. I saw one on Lawrence at 9th that was close but not exact – it looked like it might have been built at the same time by the same builder. I suppose it could have been modified but it would have been a fairly complete modification. There is a direct neighbor but it is hiding behind trees so I can ‘t see it.
