One thought on “Blue Oval – Alvin Robbins House

  1. Per S. Galley’s serial installments on Nina Winn’s diary, this house was apparently moved on April 25, 1912:

    “The Alvin Robbins house [*] being moved
    to Russell St & cut in two & front part on
    sidewalk.”

    It would be interesting to know if there are other pictures or descriptions of that event!
