Hess and Josephine Jones first moved into 273 South Ritter Avenue in 1937. They would stay for another forty years and raise their children here. Sometime in 1970, a member of the family grabbed a Polaroid camera and took an exterior photograph of the Queen Anne styled cottage. It had been painted bluish gray for decades. Later residents would encase the dwelling with blue vinyl siding.
The Jones family dwelled at 273 South Ritter Avenue when this Polaroid image was snapped.
