Do Not Adjust Your Computer Monitor, These Slummy Images Are Just As They Appear...

Contributed Photos, Jeff Skrenes

Continuing with the previous posting about "Mr. Slummy" and his big dreams at 2515 3rd St. N., here are more pictures contributed by Hawthorne Housing Director Jeff Skrenes, a.k.a. "The Hawthorne Hawkman."

First of all, the top photo is NOT upside down. Yes, the words...

"Keep Out" are painted on the door, and those words are upside down but, well, the photo is right side up. In the next image, renovation activity spills over to the public sidewalk but, hey, who cares? The last photo gives an idea what the house looks like right now.

I'm guessing vinyl siding will follow, none of this original-style historic clapboard stuff, no sir!
