Inscription.  
In the early 20th century, small apartment buildings and houses were constructed on Macomb, Ordway, Porter, Quebec, and Rodman Streets. Another popular style on these streets was the Bungalow, one of many styles that could be ordered by mail from the Sears, Roebuck Company. Everything needed to build an affordable house, from floor plans to nails, was shipped in a kit for assembly on site.
