In the second historic image, taken in the winter of 1928, Glenna Leonard posed in front of her home at 339 North Ridgeview Drive. Behind her, you can see the charming bungalows at 329 and 323 North Ridgeview Drive. Charles F. and Clara Woodstock rented the bungalow at 329 North Ridgeview for $50 a month. Mr. Woodstock was a foreman at a local tire company. The couple had two adult children still living at home at the time this photo was taken. Their son Norman worked as an operator at an oil business while their daughter Dorothy cut, bobbed, coifed, and washed hair in a nearby beauty salon. Next door, at 327 North Ridgeivew Drive, Edward A. and Edna M. Kelly lived along with Frederick Guy, a nephew to Mr. Kelly. Mr. Kelly served as a manager for a furniture company and he employed his fifteen-year old nephew as well. The contemporary photo, taken in 2013, reveals that the little has changed with these bungalows in the eighty-five years since the photo was first snapped.

Rollen G. and Georgia Leonard dwelled at 339 North Ridgeview Drive. These photos show the couple before they were married and before they moved into the Irvington Terrace neighborhood. Their lovely home still stands although significantly altered. (see previous post)
