The pattern on the roof of this house in a tax appraisal photo from 1934 is what caught our eye. The tax appraisal from that year lists the roof material as “New Comp”(osition). We do not know if that means tar paper shingles, but that is what it appears to be.
The house, which was built in 1902 and stood at 3604 South 700 East, was demolished sometime between 1958 and 1961 to make way for a duplex.
