Last week's house is an example of the houses built by Haverhill families as they prospered from the shoe industry in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The Austin P. Nichols house, at 4 Highland Ave., was described in a calendar of the Friends of the Public Library as having "a delightful half tower on the second floor." Nichols was said to be an excellent photographer and took this picture, along with many others printed by the series of calendars. Lloyd Smith said the second-floor tower was "not unusual" for that era. Stanley Hamel said he once lived nearby and almost drove from Wolfeboro to renew his acqaintance with this house. Gerry Danforth also identified it correctly, as did Kay Cordischi. We had a late answer to the previous week's picture of GAR Park from "The Garcia Twins, Shayla and Ryan." If you have any photos you think might be of interest or awaken memories, send them to Barney Gallagher at the above address.
