Numerous families have called this place home since the 1910s. Throughout the mid-twentieth century, the 607 side of the double was occupied by the Johnson family. Raymond Johnson worked at Allison's Motors while Mrs. Eleanor Johnson was busy with their children.
In the top photo, the Johnsons gathered for a photograph in the backyard of their home in 1953. You can also see the rear of the bungalow at 611 N. Bancroft. The Peacher family lived there in 1953. In the second photo, the Johnsons posed on the front porch of their home in 1967. Amazingly, the urn still sits on the same pedestal forty five years later in 2012.
