This brick multi-family house was built around 1930 and rises two stories to an asphalt roof.

The 1925 Bromley Atlas shows Bernard Davis as the owner of a wood frame house that occupied this lot.

In 1930 part of this house was owned by John Scott, a 47-year old house painter from Ireland. John lived with his 49-year old Irish wife Elizabeth and 38-year old Edward Cain, a boarder who worked as a Boston policeman. Part of this house was rented for $45 a month by Perry Openshaw, a 31-year old steam pipe fitter. Perry lived with his 34-year old wife Eva, a packer in a candy factory; and 11-year old daughter Virginia. The building was valued at $9,000.
