Few people have heard of Marine Villa, but its the neighborhood south of Cherokee Street and east of Broadway/Jefferson, more of less.
It seems to have developed slowly, in the rural areas south of the central city. But it was home to the Marine Hospital, and also the Home Brewery. There are wood frame houses like the one above, and half flounders, like the one below.
But in between the much older houses are “tract” houses like these below, which can be found throughout the city and were built around the turn of the century.
The interstate slashes through here on the east, disrupting what had been a neighborhood connected to the river.
