Beautiful Home Along Michigan Street--c1919

Walter and Mary Fee Palmer rented the beautiful residence at 5712 East Michigan Street from March, 1918 until November 21, 1921. They eventually built a home at 333 North Audubon Road. Based upon the foliage, it appears that the photos below were likely taken in the summer. Little has changed about the dwelling except for the porch columns. Notice the empty lot to the west of the home where a bungalow now stands.
