Leo Page Residence – 1919

Today we go to Ouellette Avenue, but all the way back to November 8, 1919. We took a look at the Leo Page house back in 2009 here. But I’ve recently obtained a copy of original photo. What a grand house.

This front entrance seems very Great Gatsby-esque, and makes me think what a roaring place the Border Cities of the early 1920’s must have been.

Today it’s remuddled beyond recognition. But it’s still standing, and that’s more than you can usually say on old photo Friday!

Have a great weekend everyone, see you back here Monday!
