874 Union Avenue, 1929

Here’s another fine old house that our Number Man was documenting for the widening of Union Avenue in 1929. This was at 874 Union Avenue (pre-renumbering) which puts it just south of NE Mason Street on the east side of Union.

    From the street renumbering directory, 874 Union Ave. North became 4054 NE Union Ave.

    This site is awesome :)
    Grew up in N.E. off of union….would love to see anything about Woodlawn School. They have a time capsule that
    will be opening in my lifetime. Was so lucky to attend during last opening.
    416 N.E. Holland area….right off of old Union Ave.
    Wish I had something to contribute :) <a

    I have an answer to the question above! Miller’s Machine and Repair Shop was across the street, owned by Walter Miller. Ollie Henderson (Ollie being a name for men and women) lived at 874 Union Avenue at the time.
