Photo of Cub Scouts Reveal Long Lost Arts and Crafts Double--c1935
Sometime in the mid-1930s, these enthusiastic members of the Cub Scout Pack #8 gathered in a lot east of the Irvington Presbyterian Church for this photo. A baseball and bat have been dropped and one young man appears to be playing catch in the background. Behind this hearty group, you can see a double that used to sit along Irving Court next to the church. The Arts and Crafts duplex was part of a planned development north of Julian Avenue and west of Audubon Road. The home had a limited life, however, because many congregants needed a place for their autos on Sunday mornings so the dwelling was eventually cleared for a parking lot. If you recognize any of the children in this photo then drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can document them.
