Robert Montgomery, the grandson to Mr. and Mrs. Mullin, recalls the trains which passed by his childhood bedroom window near the Pennsylvania Rail Line. Seventy years later, he noted that the sound of a distant train reminds him of his childhood years in Irvington. In the historic photo, taken around 1920, you will note that the house still had its fish scales in the upper gables as well as a wonderful Queen Anne porch. If you look closely, you can see Mr. Mullin's tin shop behind the home at 5517 Bonna Avenue.
