Does anyone know what family used to live at 2170 W. 25th Street in the 1910s?

My goodness: "time indictators"!
The Riddell family! Thanks again, Odinthor.

This is probably a daft question: Doesn't "time indictators" simply mean watches'?

GW, I had forgotten that Williams Andrews Clark Jr.'s lover was a man. (his name was Harrison Post)

To read more about Mr. Post's life go to adamsboulevardhouses. There are several unexpected twists and turns. (for one thing, he ended up in a concentration camp in 1939 Germany)


P.S....The male companion's Roll Royce, that GW mentioned, was painted yellow and black, like a bumble bee. (no shrinking violet, that one )
