Trees are maple

Those aren't Elm. Look at the leaves....those are all Sugar Maple.

Champagne Anyone

Beautiful American Elm trees. Not may left in our cities any more due to dutch elm disease. What a shame!

There's one in every neighborhood

The neighbor who piles up trash in his front yard. In Arnold Park, he lives in the house on the far left.

This looks like the spot

First pass through from the end, and the stonework entrance is still there.

Driveways

It took me a while to realize there are no driveways on this street, only narrow curb cuts that must be for bicycles or wagons or pushcarts or something. My 21st Century mind kept telling me those were driveways until I looked closer. No cars? No driveways yet.

[Actually the words "driveway" and "driving" are products of the carriage-and-buggy era. Some of these homes may have had carriage houses with driveways to the street. Also note the curbside mounting blocks and hitching posts. - Dave]
