Then & Now on Murray Ave






Hi Marty,

Normand has agreed to do some local shoots and so here are some photos to start the ball rolling-- Norm the current address is 383 Murray. Unfortunately these are the only old photos I have.

The top left photo is the front porch, top right is a shot of the back porch, the bottom left is a pic of me and my brother Jim with my grandmother and in the background is the corrugated tin garage at the end of the driveway and bottom right is a left side shot which had a flower garden, apple tree and driveway.

In the early sixties we put up a cement block garage app where pic #4 was taken which should show in Norm's photo. The house dates back to at least 1935 and was occupied at that time by a George O'Brien , my parents bought it in Feb 1941for $2800.00 and paid off the mortgage in March 1952.

PS The house next door to the right was the Whites #377 ,two doors down from that is Patsy Geary's house #367,across from our house was the home of the Powes #382,to the right of the Powes' was the Springthorpes#388 and to the right of the Springthorpes' was Boswell #390 which appears in my pic #4.

All of those homes from my childhood days are still there I think

Thanks john McC & Normand
