All house sites in Queen City Park evolved from tent sites, sometimes two or three in combination, and until about 1930 all were seasonal camps. No lots or structures in QCP by the mid 1940's resemble this. Also, to this day, there have never been sidewalks in QCP.

I recently posted a note about this photo, but see it's not here. Wesley's remark below is correct. This home IS NOT in the Queen City Park area. It is in fact 96-98 Shelburne Road just off the Rotary. I owned #100 Shelburne Road next to this house which matched it, but was swiveled 90 degrees so the gable end of #100 faced north & south....not west as in this photo. This 96-98 Shelburne house has been extensively remodeled whereas #100 has the original set-up as above. There is a McAllister photo looking south from the rotary which clearly showsa side view of 98 before additions/renovations of 1960-1970.
