Does that really say Lancaster Pl? LOL:

PS

The Rood rental house, at No. 219, had an interesting owner's name on a 1916 permit:

Huh. Octavius Morgan is also listed as the owner of 215 N Hill (the Criss Cross house) with Morgan & Walls listed as architects on the 1906 building permit. Maybe he owned the whole block:

OK, No. 223 was also one of Octavius Morgan's (it's the other house pictured in e_r's Rood image), but not the other three on the block, further down the hill.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised that Octavius Morgan was into real estate development. Anyone with a little extra cash was.
