Comment: The A. Gerard House is at the right. It was destroyed by fire about 1977, with loss of one life.

In the background to the left is the William Murdock House. Just visible in the distance is probably the G. Nesbit house.

Comment: The clear vistas present in 1905 are missing. In earlier times, Brookhaven Hamlet was much more open.

The A. Gerard house would have been to the right.

It is interesting to note that the houses on both corners were destroyed by fire, with loss of life in each. It's a tragic corner.
