The Zoerchers of 52 N. Layman Avenue

The Zoercher family dwelled at 52 North Layman from 1934 to 1955. Like many Irvington families of this era, they took the time to document their lives. Most of the photos in today's post show the Zoercher children outside playing or going to school. Mrs. Zoercher and one of the grandparents appear as well. All of these photos were taken outside either in the backyard or along the side of the house. These snapshots were likely shot from the mid-1930s and into the late 1940s.

The Zoerchers were not the first to live in the home, which was likely constructed in 1906. Other early families include the Wiggins and Walkers. The Griffins moved in after the Zoerchers.
