New Homes on Randolph – 1919

From the Border Cities Era June 7, 1919:

View of Randolph avenue in Sandwich, showing construction work on 20 homes that are being erected by the Border Cities Builders, Limited, recently incorporated with a capital of $40,000. Randolph avenue is located in the choice residential section that embraces the rapidly growing district between Windsor and Sandwich, getting closer together all the time. Randolph avenue is paved and boasts some lovely homes. Near the new homes shown above the town of Sandwich is building as $60,000 school on the same style as the General Brock school.

John G. Coleridge is president of Border Cities Builders, Limited, Adair Smith of the D.M. Ferry Co., is vice-president and E.E. Longnecker secretary-treasurer.

I believe that this is the location of the photo above, with the white house with the awnings being the one in the foreground in top photo.
