|Mabel Johnson holds her daughter Maxine in 1921. The Johnsons dwelled at 252 S. Emerson Avenue|
|Along Emerson Avenue: The Sammis Home (256 S) and the Johnson Home (252 S.) are the first two homes pictured. This photo was likely taken around 1916.|
In the top photo, likely taken in 1921, Mabel Johnson holds her daughter Maxine. The other child identified on the photo is "Emma Jean." We are still trying to sort out who she might belong to. The photo was taken on the front porch of either 256 or 252 S. Emerson. (I am leaning towards 252!) Both of the houses had similar porches and the same number of steps! In the second photo, taken around 1916, you can see the Johnson home. It is second house from the left with the large hipped roof. I have also included a photo of the home 2013. The front porch has been changed and vinyl siding now covers the historic clapboard, but the original windows remain intact.
