Frank L. Smith's Legacy

The work of Mr. Frank L. Smith, Electrical Contractor and Supplies Dealer, lives on. In 1905, the residence of Mr. M. A. Jones was named as one of Smith's "best contracts." Amazingly, the original electrical box installed by Smith at 317 Allen Street more than a century ago is still in the house, although the house has been rewired and the electrical system upgraded. The current owners of the house provided Gossips with these pictures.
