    It came from a book of urban renewal comps - i.e. photos the appraiser took of non-urban renewal structures to help determine their valuation of urban renewal structures. Unfortunately, although there are a number of structures on Mallard (mostly gone) 502 isn't in there.

    Fascinating. Did you just find that book in the Durham County Library? Or were you in a special collection somewhere?

    All these photos you've been posting lately are great!

    My great Aunt Callie owned this house. She also owned 506 Markham and sold it to my other Aunt Lela Cannon.
    In 1950's, Eddie Carden lived in this house and we, the Fuquays, lived at 506.

504 Mallard Ave., February 1966

A one-story, triple-A-roofed house with rear ell, this house has a pair of wood four-light casement windows in the front gable and diamond-shaped vents in the side gables. The three-bay, single- pile house rests on a stuccoed foundation and has vinyl siding, soffits, and eaves and an asphalt- shingled roof. The engaged front porch is supported by replacement wrought-iron supports with a matching rail between. The house retains original four-over-four windows throughout with a single six-over-six window to the left of the front door, indicating that the house may have originally had two front doors, typical of this type of worker housing. There is a partially enclosed shed-roofed porch on the left side of the gabled rear ell. Tax records indicate a 1920 construction date

Mrs. Callie Dickey is the first listed resident in 1919-1920.
