A Father and Son--1929
The Finch family lived in several houses in Irvington. In these two photos, Lewis and Richard Finch stand in front of 392 Downey Avenue. Behind them you can see 373 Burgess Avenue, a Dutch Colonial style home. (Downey Avenue turns into Burgess as it crosses South Ritter Avenue) Herman Orville Brenton, the former State Highway Commissioner, and his wife Mary A. dwelled in that home in 1929. The contemporary photo shows the same scene on January 29, 2012. The historic images are courtesy of Evan Finch. You may learn more about the Finch family by clicking on the link below.
