[House without walls]

Description:

Photograph of a two-story house whose front walls are missing. Inscription on back of photo, "This is also brick covered with concrete. It is not stucco but hard concrete. This was one of the oldest houses here and was the same distance from the bay as the other - that is it was on the same side of Water St. But there were buildings across the street between it and the bay. Notice the furniture upstairs."
