21 College St.?
Single Family Residence
21 College St.
The rear of this postcard states that the house is of 21 College St. College St. was renumbered between 1910 and 1920; upon renumbering, the first house on the street started at #75. In 1910, the house shown at #21-23 College St. corresponds with #81-83 College St. today.
The 1911 city directory lists a Leroy Wilcox at #21 College St., which is consistent with this card. However, the house currently at #21 College St. does not resemble the house in this postcard at all. It is a two-family house on the city atlas, and is still a two-family house, whereas this card shows a single family house. The styles of the house are totally different. This house also has a barn/garage, but the house on the atlas shows no structure in the rear.
It is more likely that this photo is of Leroy Wilcox, who happened to live at #21 College St., but the house pictured is from another location. Leroy Wilcox was a Real Estate and Insurance Broker.
This card is also interesting for two more reasons. First, the automobile is unusual for a postcard of this era. Second, there appears to be a goat hitched to a small wagon in the driveway.
