8862 Towanda Street. Naylor #121 (1970. 143) is a
duplicate image. Also see Naylor #87 (1970.109), which
shows the same house with an addition to the north. Known
as "The Squirrels", this three-story stucco dwelling
perched on the edge of the Wissahickon has gone through
many transformations. A succession of alterations in 1894,
1897, 1900 and 1902 brought it into the form Naylor
captured with his camera by 1910.
