Early Flounders, Lafayette Square

Lafayette Square is famous for its Italianate and Second Empire mansions, and rightfully so, but it already had many early settler houses by the time the wealthy and famous began to move in (and Compton and Dry shows there were more than a few industrial uses, as well). These two flounders, back to back, are in great condition, and you can even see them on Compton and Dry. The city records date of 1889 is clearly wrong (I have discussed in the past that the aforementioned date seems to be a generic year registrars entered when the original date had been lost).
