This three-story multi-family house was built in 1925 and has been converted to condos.

In 1930 this house was owned by Andrew Keane, a 50-year old from Ireland who worked as a clerk for a railroad's mail department. Andrew lived with his 55-year old sister Winifred (born in Ireland) and 45-year old boarder Clara Gerard, a stitcher in a shoe factory. Part of this house was rented for $50 a month by Ernest Foss, a 44-year old drug store manager from Maine. Ernest lived with his 35-year old wife Irene (born in Maine) and their two daughters: 1-year old Lucille and infant Joan. Another part of this house was rented for $40 a month by James Sherry, a 33-year old street car conductor from Canada. James lived with his 26-year old wife Mary (born in Canada) and his 21-year old brother-in-law William Mitchell, a soda machine operator. The building was valued at $18,000.
