Last week’s ‘Where’ generated an interesting variety of responses from a surprisingly small geographic area, perhaps owing to the number of Victorian homes in central Red Bank.

One reader thought the photo showed a detail of “Mrs. Pearl Dwek’s house” on Leroy Place, an allusion to it’s place in the short-lived real estate empire of Solomon Dwek.

Another ‘Where’ regular, showing a commendable familiarity with the redbankgreen archive, thought it might be from what we used to call the house of ladders on Broad Street.

Other entries cited the “Riverwalk” building, home to a law firm and some other offices on Maple Avenue; the former house on Broad Street (opposite the ladder house, by coincidence) that’s now home to the law firm McKenna, Dupont, Higgins & Stone; and the Woman’s Club of Red Bank, opposite the post office on Broad.

Only Bob Colmorgen (whose brother, Carl, wrote in on his behalf) nailed it: Congregation Beth Shalom, at 186 Maple Ave.

Thanks to Jenn Woods, Mike Halfacre, Cathi Swett and Raeanne Guzzi for writing in also.
