Castles of the 99%; long-gone home on Walnut Street

This classic early 20th C. flat located at 504-506 Walnut Street was advertised by the builder in the local German language papers. The home is gone now, but was located in the old German ghetto adjacent to the north edge of Milwaukee's current downtown. If the home survived through 1929 the address would've become 506-508 W. Walnut Street.There are many homes like this one that remain today although most have lost or changed some of their features like porch railings. Some research to determine the name of the builder could verify whether the builder's model is the same.
