30 Poinsett

A most curious building, with battens nailed to the entire façade over tar paper in an attempt, perhaps, to weatherproof it. Surely, this is just temporary, but for how long? The piazza screen has been upgraded to brick, although it has been many years since any improvements have been made. In the early 1900s, George Sanders owned the house; he was a pile driver in 1920. Later, it was rented for over a decade to Joseph Thompson, a grave digger, and his wife Louise and five children.
