7. Pope House, Circa 1929

A white and brown house.
This Tudor house was built circa 1929, and designed by architect Herbert Spieler. The English cottages which influenced this design were much smaller in size. The "half-timbering" detailing in the gable ends comes from the ancient practice of splitting a crooked tree to form the structure of the house with the infill panels often being rubble or stone. Earl Pope worked in sales for Eby-Loser, a wholesale confectioner. His wife was Caroyl.
