McVey Home in the early 1920s

The McVey tenure in 211 Good Avenue came to a sad end in the 1920s with the death of William McVey of Bright's Disease. These photographs were the last taken of the home by the McVeys. Note that the home was painted a brighter color and that the front garden had become lush. The car visible in the top photo would have belonged to the residents next door and just to the south (217 Good Avenue).

The contemporary photo shows the home during the spring of 2012. The historic images are courtesy of Lori Malander and the Irvington Historical Society.
