    The Thurston house is at the corner of Oakley Place and Plymouth Avenue.
    A kinda eclectic block house is at the corner of Oakley and Julian! Wow!
    Thanks, Chris – I never knew these houses existed.
    My house in Kirkwood uses the same type of “textured” (word ?) blocks on its above ground block foundation; it was built in 1940

    Who was E.H. Thurston? I can’t find any information about him online.

      Kyle, I have to admit I don’t know, either. I was only able to glean his name from property records, and passed his name along to my readers.

    He had something to do with local big business, as his name – and his wife’s – are all over teens-’20’s-’30’s issues of the P-D. That’s all I could find ether.
