Take a Hike

There are sidewalks, and there are sidewalks.

Then there are THESE sidewalks. I thought they were part of an outer service drive at first. Really wide. Was it typical for Indy at the time or just this street?

On the street where you live, 115 years later

This pristine, beautiful, tree lined street with stately Victorian mansions. So classy and elegant it makes you wish you were living there. I wonder what that street looks like 115 years later.

Gone Baby Gone

The house at left in the 1400 block of North Delaware, sadly, is gone. The lot it stood on now makes up the side yard of the house you see behind it, that still exists. Surprisingly, most of the wrought iron fence you see also still exists. The wooden fence does not.

Most of the homes in this designated historic area are now adopted to commercial use: Law offices, bed and breakfasts, and fraternal or professional organizations.
