As Jimby said, it's actually an old innercity neighbourhood that began filling up around the 1910-12 boom but by 1924 had only ended up maybe 1/3 full. As it was the 'edge of town' when it was being developed, the houses tended to be modest. Now however it's a very wealthy neighbourhood. Although many (most?) of the original turn of the century housing is gone, there are a few tidbits showing the area's age, including this school turned into a 4-plex
Other random original homes
I quite like the contemporary architecture though, most of it seems pretty high quality.
