OHU50K NOTES

This fixer upper makes me sad in its current state. I picture a young husband carrying his bride over the threshold as they moved into their new home in 1929. He may have worked in the auto industry while she performed the heavier job of raising the family. As the children grew up and moved out of the nest, the couple decided to convert the extra space into a rental income. Over the decades, the neighborhood fell into decline, jobs were lost, neighbors moved out. Now many of the houses on the street are abandoned. Although it has seen better days, the black and white bathroom, fireplace with flanking glass-front bookcases, arched doorways and vintage kitchen give us a glimpse of the family that once loved this home.
