Radburn, A Town for the Motor Age


302-G23 Highstreet1
b. 1929

302-G23 Highstreet was possibly enumerated as (112/247) Abbott Court North in the census, as no unit letters were used. It is not at all sure that this is indeed the same apartment, as the building designation is also different. As the occupant is the same in 1930 and 1931 however, the units are treated as one.2 The occupants of 302-G23 Highstreet were
     in 1930-1: Paul L Grambs2,1
     in 1933: William F Lackman3
     and in 1935-41: Arthur Lintz.4,5,6,7
