Random Historic Photo - 6372 Guilford
posted: Mar. 28, 2024

Random Historic Photo header

This photo is from the 1930s. It is of 6372 Guilford Avenue, although when this photo was taken the street name was Bellefontaine (pronounced BELL-FOUNTAIN).

Alloway's overlaid text has some errors. The city directory shows Oscar and Pearl Wire lived at 6528 Ashland Avenue (now Carrollton) in 1931. The city directories DO have many errors, but as the listing below shows, the Wires are not shown at this address.
I do know that State Senator Les Duvall (BRHS Class of 1942) and his family lived there during the depression. Les's grandfather was William Buser.
For many years it was Peggy Taylor's Hair Salon and is now Urban Optics. Amazingly, the house today looks almost identical to this photo.
