Remarks: J. H. Laurie is listed as an El Paso residential client in an undated Trost & Trost notebook now in the collection of Trost family. A complete search of the El Paso City Directories has not been made. In 1910 and 1911, J. H. Laurie lived at 1207 East Rio Grande; in 1915 and 1920 at 1016 Noble; in 1925, James H. Laurie is listed at 2724 Aurora, which appears to be a contractor builder bungalow. The Noble Street duplex does not appear to be a Trost & Trost.
