John Danner in 1938 along Ritter Avenue
Young John Danner poses in front of his childhood home at 72 North Ritter Avenue in 1938. The federal agency known as the Works Progress Administration had already widened the street and removed the green space in between the sidewalk and the road. Behind him and across the street, you can see 75-77 N. Ritter Avenue. This small double was constructed sometime in the mid-1920s and replaced a single family home.
