Comment: This picture, cropped from an unmarked photo post card found at the Post-Morrow Foundation, is very likely an early version of the Morrow house known as "The Oaks." Clues are that the footprint seems nearly the same, and the location and type of chimneys. The porch, which is just seen on the opposite side (probably the west side) was later extended around the front (south side), and the bay window made into the front door. Also small modifications were made to the second floor and roof line, by adding a small protrusion at the front door, and what appears to be a sun room on the east side. The attic space was said to have been at one time the servants quarters. People in the picture were unidentified.
