Then & Now: Do we know where this is?

This Worcester area had seen utterly a bit of change by a time this print was taken, yet it defended a rather rural look: prolonged drives, pretentious homes from a 19th century and stately trees.

Roll behind a time a hundred years, though, and a white residence on a left would have been a solitary passenger of a print frame. It was a residence with a unapproachable pedigree. Designed by Calvert Vaux, a good famous engineer and landscape designer, a residence even featured in Vaux’s book, Villas and Cottages, and a pattern (No. 21) would have been perused by many a rich male or lady looking for a character for a nation residence of their own.

This city area was, indeed, countryish during that time. An 1870 map shows far-reaching open spaces around that house, with stables and greenhouses and even a residence for a gardener.

The far-reaching open space opposite a street, however, would, in 1886, be filled with a Victorian Gothic home on a right.

Though that residence was to have a few opposite owners, expected a many venerable was E. W. Vaill, best famous as a pantentee of folding chairs. Vaill’s bureau was rather renowned in a news of a late 19th century: saloons flourished around all factories, yet Vaill was famous for espousing temperance.

 Hint: Even their prestigious story could not strengthen these ancestral homes from dispersion for a maybe equally renowned purpose.
