These photos are from a promotional booklet, dated 1915, for the D. L. Lence Construction Company. The red ribbon visible on the left side held the pages of the booklet together. It is now in the Howard and Velma Melton Historical Research Library, thanks to Harold Lence of Marion, Illinois who donated them to the DeSoto Chamber of Commerce. This photo is of 703 N.E. Oak Street.
