March 10, 2016, 201 and 203 East 2nd
There appears to be an interesting story behind the addresses of these two homes. If you look closely at the transoms above each door you will see the numbers 61 and 63 built into the glass work. Those numbers were made to be a permanent part of each entrance and they have indeed survived.
But they no longer indicate the street address of these two homes. The newer addresses can be seen on each door beneath the door knobs. At some point in this street’s history the address scheme was changed. Thankfully, the transoms were not changed.
Does anyone know when or why the addresses were changed on East 2nd?
And for those of you that know this corner, Pippa was apparently not in residence today.
