Jefferson and State Streets
The Italianate house, with a mansard roof, in the foreground was at 47 Jefferson SE, at the corner of Island (now Weston). It was the home of Frank L. Carpenter in 1912. Across the steet at 54 Jefferson Ave., partially hidden behind trees, stands another Italianate mansion with a mansard roof. The former Nelson Howlett home was a three story red brick building at the NE corner of Jefferson and Washington St. The one-story building at the SE corner of Jefferson and State St. is that of Barton A. Spring Co., funeral director. The building in the distance, showing above the trees, is St. Mary's Hospital. The cars, which appear to be of late 1920's vintage, determined the date of the photo.
