Handwritten note on another photo describes the family residence as being located at 3001 Bookhout Street and the corner Wolf St. Dallas TX. Mrs. Thevenet writes, “Soon after, we added two more bedrooms, a bath, a kitchen, and extended the front porch on two sides of the home. Note no shrubbery, flower garden or trees are planted yet. Later a foundation was put all around at ground level and a brick walk from corner steps and a chain link fence and 2 iron gates etc. installed all around property. A family named Fisher lived in the cottage next door. This was a parlor, hall, one bedroom combination kitchen-dining room. No phone, no electricity, no plumbing. A “chick sale” in back yard with Sears & Roebuck catalogue for toilet paper. Chicken house in back.
