Finding photographs of the homes and businesses of the Vonneguts, Efroymsons, Ayres, and Blocks families is relatively easy. Just go to the William H. Bass Photo Collection at the Indiana Historical Society and many images appear documenting the buildings owned by the wealthy and prominent residents of our city. Bass photographers focused heavily on downtown and north side buildings as the society folks moved north. But in this “city of homes,” a popular slogan for Indianapolis in the early 1900s, it is difficult to locate photographs of houses owned by John Q. Public who lived, worked, worshipped, and raised their families with little fanfare and short obituaries to document their rich lives.
