    This could potentially be Bayer's Road near Vaughan Ave. Thanks to Eric K. for that suggestion via email. Can anyone confirm this location?

    Thanks https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]. Can you give more info on how you know that? That does appear to be that part of Bayer's Road that has been widened over the years.

    Hi there. Here's a link to an uploaded photo. The house on the right in your pic is the green house on the rightmost area of my pic. The differences between the pics are that the awning over the door had been taken off years later, and the trees were planted later. Also, you can see the mound on which the house is situated from your photo and the one I took. My uploaded pic was taken in fall of 2019 when demolition crew were readying to demolish the house to prepare for road widening plans. flic.kr/p/2iR3jjW

    Here's another link to another photo I took in fall 2019. This photo is a close-up of the four-digit address on the house on Bayers Road. I took this pic for reference (as a note to myself) so that I could research the house's history. flic.kr/p/2iR7JXV
