Revisiting Carondelet: Minnesota Avenue Between Mott and Iron Streets

On the other side of Minnesota Avenue from The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet is this row of houses, many showing alterations from the passage of time. The cornices are missing here and there, but overall they look much the same as they probably did a century ago.

The proliferation of tan brick also comes into prominence at the turn of the Twentieth Century, as can be seen in this row of six tract bungalows.

Then, crossing over Soper Street, which dead-ends at the convent, the houses switch to two stories, with one very old wood frame house mixed in.
