I believe the house on the right is the one my mother sketched when she was 16 and submitted for an art contest in 1931. Her drawing was selected to be the cover on the commerative cover celebrating the sesquicentenial of this Worcester house.

My dad worked at the Pearl Street branch of Worcester County National Bank in the early 60s, which was at the top of the hill. It was New England's first drive-in bank, and lots of Worcester's elite used to park there. I still have an autographed photo of Bob Cousy that my dad got one day. He personally knew the WCNB president at the time, I believe his name was Edward Clifford.
