I was flipping through the Beryl Ford collection online, and came upon a bunch of "Unidentified residence" pictures.  Of course, that sounds like a challenge to me...

I'm pretty sure that this one is on Utica, near 33rd...


Several of these look familiar to me... Isn't this on 41st between Lewis and Utica?


Don't know about this one, but I love it!


In any case, the "unidentified residences" start on this page of the Beryl Ford Collection... you can just browse through and maybe solve some mysteries.

I know you're right on the second one. That one is almost too easy. Its right on the northwest corner of 41st & Lewis to be exact.

If you want to get really spooky, here: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=41st+%26+lewis,+74105&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=48.421237,68.378906&ie=UTF8&ll=36.110143,-95.958431&spn=0.012152,0.02502&z=16&layer=c&cbll=36.104255,-95.959934&panoid=DnQQgSpTF7io5ec86L7skA&cbp=2,11.391801089789169,,1,-4.5791870152473555

Regarding the first one, I think you're thinking of this house. But, I don't think we have a match.

The top one is the Ungerman house. I could find out more but I'd be called a liar by CF.

Tulsa was a beautiful city before the trees got overgrown, the streets fell apart, and we went to a council form of government.

Great thread!  I love pics that show houses and how they originally looked - as an architect, I really enjoy seeing what the place used to look like.  The original owner of my house passed photos down, so I'm lucky to have some of it right after construction in 1928...then again in the 30's, 50's, 60's, and 80's.  I was hoping to see some other houses in my neighborhood but haven't come across any yet.

Where was this taken?  It was taken in 1962.  In 62, US 64/OK 51 made right-angle turns at 15th and Harvard, 51st and Harvard, and 51st and Memorial.  My guess is one of those 3 locations.

51st & Harvard, I think, as I believe Stein Mart is an old Safeway store.  What say you FOTD?

There was a another earlier view of this building before its eastern expansion and showing the multiple garages. I do believe this is the old Whisenhunt funeral home on 6th street.
