1890. Wallace Munn. 1012-1014 Oak Lane Ave, Philadelphia, PA

"Same architect has just completed plans for a residence for F. Wallace Munn, at Oak Lane, to be stone, three stories high, slate roof, plate and stained glass, wood mantels, hard wood finish, electric work, best of sanitary plumbing, etc." (1890) Munn had a patent on terra cotta tiles, and his family owned the house until the 1970s (estimated). The plaster in a first floor room shows the inscriptions of a John Fitz (an artist, illustrator, and handyman at the time) and a William J. Vanderslue
