Been doing a little end of the year tidying within the myriad photos on my computer and found this shot I took in May 2010. No clue what it’s looking like now, but I can’t say I’m very hopeful. Anyone recognize this one? Wow. WTH?

    Although I grew up in Indianapolis in the 1940s, I now live in Abilene TX. I’m fascinated with your pictures of various places and things in my “natal city.” The 2010 picture of the double (now it would be called a duplex) is interesting because we lived for several years in a similar house on North Keystone. Do you have any notes concerning the address? Since my father was a carpenter/house painter, and I was his “gofer,” we worked on dozens of houses similar to this one. The garage next door, with the non-existent lot line, indicates an older and poorer section of town with no or few building restrictions, although the large side yard (which might just be a vacant lot) would be an valuable addition. The two non-matching front porches probably were added after it was built to give some semblance of individuality. The non-matching insulating covering of the house may just be a short lull in the renovation process. It’s nice to see that the windows being replaced are smaller, making for less heat loss. The TV dish on the roof shows that somebody lived there relatively recently, since dishes weren’t all that common in low-rent areas. Keep us apprised.

    The home pictured is immediately west of Azteca Auto Service at 1817 East Prospect Street, south side of the street. Google Maps has a reasonably recent image for the street view.
