Then & Now: E. R. Smith home on C Street, Fairifield, IA

April 22, 2011

Before and after on C Street Fairfield Iowa.
Then: This ornately detailed house at 103 South B Street belonged to Fairfield lawyer and real-estate agent Edgar Russell Smith, proudly photographed here with his family around 1903-1909. Especially noteworthy was the distinctive front porch spanning the entire B Street fa├žade.

Now: A century later, the house still stands virtually intact except for its original clapboard siding, corner boards and front porch, which has been altered along with the addition at left rear. It is now a commercially-zoned three-family residence.
