The house shown here still stands at 1120 N. Rampart, currently home to a veterinary clinic. When the photograph was taken, ca. 1912-1914, the business of Octave Montagnet, Builder, was just next door at 1118 (his sign is just visible at the far left of the shot), and the 1914 City Directory tells us that he resided at 2659 DeSoto. But is that Mr. Montagnet himself in the center of the photograph? And why is the other man hiding behind the tree???
