The second image from the above photos was taken on Tanner St. along library point. The house in the distance is on Haddon Ave. and still stands today.

Brian, my brain just cannot grasp which house it is. Could it be the Nicholson house? If these people are standing on Tanner St, where is Haddon Ave? Thanks for your help with this--driving me crazy.

Oh...I see. Brian, I actually was thinking that it was my office building at 124 West Kings Highway (next to the Kingway Learning Center)....but those two buildings do look exactly the same...perhaps they are the same model of building, built by the same builder.

Brian, I think that the way the road bends around, and also the fact that (because of the bicycles and telephone wires) the photo appears to be taken after the turn of the 20th century (at which time there were more buildings around my office) makes you correct.

Isn't it amazing what a difference 100 + years makes.
