952 Victoria Avenue

The photo above ran in the Border Cities Star in November, 1927:

More evidence of the building that has gone on in the Border Cities this season is shown above in the English type cottage, completed at 666 Victoria avenue, between Ann and Erie streets. Steven F. Robarts is the builder, and this is the last of six houses of similar character which comprise his season’s program.

Looks like the driveway was widened over the years, but it also looks like the scrawny little tree in the top photo on the left has grown pretty big in the last 82 years… 😉
