  1. Hello Mr. Dorpat,
    My husband and I have lived in Wallingford since 1973. Our house will be 100 years old next year (4524 Latona Avenue NE). We are only the 4th owner. I am looking for any information or pictures about our house and our area (University Daniel’s Grove). What advice might you give me regarding how to conduct my search?

    I love the work you do helping us all keep our sense of history. It is a real gift to Seattle.

    Thank you in advance for any help you might give me,
    Ellen Mitchell

    What a small world. I was born in 1959 when we lived at 4541 Latona. We lived there until 1965. My brothers and sisters have many fond memories of Latona ave. and I do too, although I was very young.
