Ordinary with its plan but lavish with its eccentric brick, this residence faces Aurora at 6609, and so it looks across the speedway to Green Lake. There is along this west side of Aurora a long line of residences, which, I assume, were zoned free from commerce in the interests of the park. The colored shot is used courtesy – we hope – of google and its street views. Note that the porch posts have given their bricks and the complexities of the front door have been reduced. Directly behind these home on Linden Ave. commerce was allowed to pursue its ambitions in a zone of commercial anarchy – more or less. The next photograph – again from the tax survey – shows a modest example. We may wonder if they could afford the tax assessment.
