I was surprised, however, to discover that the house was rented in 1940. The tenants paid $25/month. The Lilley family lived here and included Leonard, Leonice, their two children - James and Mary Jane, and Leonard's father, James Sr.
Did they really not have house numbers here back then, do you know???

I think they had to have house numbers by 1940. There were a lot of houses in Shaler by then. However, I did find lots of old boxes shipped to my previous 1920's house, and they were shipped to RFD(rural free delivery) box numbers.
