Who lived in our house first?

Portland Maps historic permits lists G. G. Joyce as the first owner of our house.  I searched for his name and found that he was the manager for the Broadway Hazelwood Confectionary store which was part of the Hazelwood Cream Company.

 I found that tidbit in an ad in this old football program.    PDXHistory has a page on the Hazelwood Cream Company.

This post is for you, Sharon!

That's really interesting; thanks for sharing! Though I will eventually get to your block to look up the info on your house in about 3 or 4 weeks! I'm working my way through plat by plat, block by block. Progress is slow. =)
