I looked in the old Sanborn Fire Maps and learned that 703 Grinnell St appeared in the 1892 fire map. Seven years later the house was renumbered to 903 Grinnell Street. The earlier 1892 edition did not mention any houses in the entire section to the west. I also dug down in the old shoe box and found the black and white photo below which shows the house as it appeared in 1965. That seems so long ago, but it's not - really. The Beatles made their debut on the Ed Sullivan Show the year before. Ringo and Paul are still alive and kicking. They look great. And the house at 903 Grinnell Street looks great too. In fact it looks better today than it did forty nine years ago.
