Remarks: Gus Trost is presumed to be the architect, or supervising architect, since he is seen on the porch in the Ponsford photograph. This house is presumed to be on the East side of El Paso (note the flat land and the windmill), but has not been located. It is one of the best Trost bungalows built in the Craftsman style.
