Boys Play Near Farmer's Field--1940
Duff Thompson and Bill Wilkins lived in the 6100 block of Dewey Avenue in 1940. The boys had plenty of room to play as Dewey Avenue dead-ended into a field east of the neighborhood. Most of the folks who lived in that block rented or owned small bungalows built in the 1920s. In this photo, you can see the two boys and the wide open space behind them. After World War II, a developer built several small brick homes on the open land. This historic image is courtesy of Sue Thompson.
