2704 East Franklin Street - Before and After

Another success story with today's pictures. 2704 East Franklin in Church Hill was looking pretty rough when this first picture was taken in April of 1974. It does look like the beginnings of a renovation are taking place if you look in the upper windows, but even the surrounding houses are pretty run down.

Today this house has been revived, along with the it's neighbors:

  1. Nicely done--wonder if that's the same tree? Looks like it was just a sapling in the '74 photo.

    Though they really should have saved the wrought iron railing on the roof of the house on the left.
