Although the picture looks more vintage, the date on it says Jan. 3, 1952. It was made on West Bellville Street looking toward downtown Marion.
Behind the ice covered tree limbs and branches, on the left, you can see the beautiful old Steamboat style home of Mr. and Mrs. John Flanary. At this time the Flanary's owned the home and is was in beautiful condition.
This one of a kind house was razed several years ago due to it being un-lived in and taken care of and it was in a very deteriorated state. A new brick home now sets on the location of the old home.
The man on the right looking toward the street is Mr. David H. Postlethweight.
