On the reverse the writer explains how the house is much larger than it looks.



The address is actually 2319.... Thompson Street north of Adams was renamed as a northerly extension of Portland Place circa 1925.

"F. L. W." would be Florence L. Warner, a bank stenographer; "mother" was Fannie Warner, a widow, who owned the house.

Flo married Verne R. Pentecost, an assistant cashier at Security National, around Feb 15 of 1915...so perhaps she was encouraging J.S. Mitchell to come west for the wedding.




2319 Portland née Thompson



2325 Portland née Thompson
