☞ REMEMBER: Sylvan Terrace circa 1923

The identical row houses on Sylvan Terrace probably were in pretty shabby shape in the above photo from 1923 but must have also been still seen as one of the most unique places in the city. These homes up on Sugar hill became official city landmarks many decades later and would all receive subsidies to fix them up to their original appearance from the time they were built.  As seen in the more recent photo, Sylvan Terrace still remains quite a charmer today even during the winter months.
