Last week, Pamela Mixa-Cranna sent Gossips this amazing picture, from a family collection of photographs, of the house that stood at the west end of this row of houses--right out on the bluff overlooking the river.
The National Register of Historic Places nomination describes the house, which had the address 16-18 West Prison Alley, in this way:
Two and three-story wood dwelling, flat roof, bay windows, bracketed cornice, peaked roof over tower, bracketed entranceways.
Mixa-Cranna describes it in this way:
The house belonged to Mrs. Pula; she lived on the top right floor. My grandparents and aunts and uncles (Himmel) lived in the bottom right apartment. When my father and mother married (Mixa), they moved into the bottom left apartment. The car belonged to my Uncle Ray.COPYRIGHT 2013 CAROLE OSTERINK
