When this photo was taken, the Humphry house stood at 674 Washington Street. It had originally been built on the northwest corner of 7th and Lincoln St., a site now occupied by an empty office space that was converted from an old gas station. The Humphry house was an other nice example of the Italianate style, the most prevalent style of architecture being built in Eugene during the 1880's. When this photo was taken the house had lost its original siding to cedar shingles, and perhaps its original square porch post to Colonial Revival replacements. Unfortunately the move to the 600 block of Washington St. insured its demolition in 1964 for the Washington-Jefferson Sreet. Bridge.
