One day when we were passing out fliers for the Hawthorne Annual Meeting, Peter Teachout pointed out some houses on 29th Ave. N, facing Farview Park, and said he'd heard they were called "the five sisters" because of being next to each other and having similar architectural details.
Today I was in the area, and...
...I finally had a chance to take their "family portraits." The houses are in order, top to bottom, which corresponds to moving eastward from the corner of 6th St. N. and 29th Ave. N.
Note how the last house is like the smallest sister, who is clutching her toy pony. (I added an additional image of the fifth house, to show that detail better) I wonder what the story is behind these five similar houses, all together?
