Neighborhood Treasure: 104 Year Old Photo of 1314 Glenlake Avenue (circa 1912) Discovered


What a wonderful discovery!

After reading the ‘Teaser #31’ tidbit from the Spring 2016 issue of the ‘Edgewater Scrapbook’ by the Edgewater Historical Society, our neighbors sent us this photo they discovered of their house mentioned in the piece.

They believe the photo was taken around 1912 since the house now at 1310 Glenlake is not in the picture.  One of the three women who can be seen on the porch in the photo could well be Mrs. Henry Krauter!

Included below is the original photo & related article by the Edgewater Historical Society.
