    This was my great grandfathers house. He was a tin smith who went blind later in life. He still would walk considerable distances around town despite his handicap. In his later years, he lived in Few Gardens and was struck and killed by a car while crossing Alston at Liberty street. He was walking to the A&P that had moved to that corner. That building is still there. The year was 1964.
