Mary Stevenson's parents, Edward and Ohio Pulver, lived nearby at 112 Johnson Avenue. Within a very short amount of time, however, Mrs. Stevenson would lose both her father and husband. Her comfortable world was about to change dramatically.
Shortly after moving into 56 South Irvington, Mary Stevenson grabbed her trusty camera and documented the home and the nearby neighborhood. She was clearly house proud and once again had a fine home for her beautiful grand piano.
