Narrowing down the neighborhood for last week’s “This Old House” was easy — it said Canal Street, right on the back of the 1930s WPA photo.
But which house exactly? After extensive back-and-forth, both Morley Boyd and Peter Barlow nailed it: 4 Woods Grove Road.

The only identification on the back says: “On Training Green.”
Was that where the Revolutionary War militia gathered, near the Kings Highway North/Old Hill Road intersection? Or someplace else — say, Crawford Road off Partrick?
