I believe Wissahickon Heights was the original name for Chestnut Hill.
Yes, specifically "The section of Chestnut Hill west of Seminole Avenue and below Graver's Lane. Known later as Saint Martin's."
The funny thing with this illustration is the the building numbers over the doors are transposed. Should be 423-421.
723-721? I noticed the number thing too. Guy in the printing plant not aware of the flow of numbers and direction of Girard Ave.? I catch a lot of typos in old newspapers. NYT a lot of times put in a dummy address for a famous person reported to no doubt to cut down on the curiosity crawl outside the east side mansions, especially when reporting on burglaries. One of Diamond Jim Brady's obits had a fake address listed as well etc. Stop the presses and reprint?
A lot of great carpentry and design on these old windows.
