|416, 420, and 424 North Emerson Avenue c.1955|
The most obvious difference over fifty years later, is that of the home to the south of the Culligans. Oliver and Mary York dwelled at 416 N. Emerson Avenue for decades. Mr. York was a laborer who worked in the Hume-Mansuer Building. The York home appears to be much older than the other two and might date back to the late nineteenth century. A newer front porch had been added. You will note that an empty lot now is all that is left of the York property. Historic photos like this one will help future Irvingtonians put together the missing pieces.
