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

The 1925 Bromley Atlas shows Freelon Morris as the owner of the empty lot this house was built on.

In 1930 this house was owned by Murphy Sullivan, a 42-year old taxi driver. Murphy lived in 40 Parsons with his 35-year old wife Irene and 45-year old sister Mary, a dressmaker in a department store. 38 Parsons was rented for $70 a month by Charles Schofield, a 68-year old newspaper proofreader from Connecticut. Charles lived with two boarders: 55-year old Harry Dove, an automobile serviceman from New Hampshire; and 46-year old Bertha Eldridge, a widow from Canada. The building was valued at $10,000.
