5020 East Washington Street--1920

These stunning photos show a Butler University fraternity house and its members in 1920. A previous post of this home may be seen by clicking on the label "Butler." There are so many things I love about these photos. Notice the woodwork, the furniture, the fireplace mantel, and the clothing on the young men. In the bottom photo, a young man appears to be pontificating to the members. Notice the animal hide on the table in front of him and the animal head hanging above the woodwork. One person leans against a Victrola. These wonderful photos are courtesy of Amy Friedly, the great great granddaughter of Hilton U. Brown, Jr.
