Remarks: The photograph is rather odd in that it shows only the first story and not the entire house. For this reason it may be difficult to locate. Apparently Trost was proud of the entry stairs, which are the most prominent feature of the photograph. The photograph shows shrubbery of several years’ growth.
J.W Malcolmson was listed in the City Directory in 1905-1906 at 901 Campbell Street. After reading the newspaper article dated September 14, 1906, that is was determined that the home was located on the corner of Campbell and Montana.
