This colonial Revival dwelling is little changed from today when Naylor shot this photograph.
The image also affords a clear view of 51 Rex Avenue, a much earlier farmhouse. Note that
the stone retaining walls (although now wearing a cloak of ivy) and the steps down to Shawnee
Street still exist as does the stone curbing on Rex Avenue.
