    I couldn't find a Colville on any 1907-vintage maps or census data in the Polish Hill vicinity.

    Jones Avenue is now Brereton Street.

    This picture is placed on Stockholm street because the photograph of Mrs. Colville's house on Jones (now Brereton st) is from the street behind. Though much has changed, the topography can be recognized by the horizon.

    Here are the other two Jones Ave/Colville pics:

    I doubt it is Stockhom because it is 2 blocks from Brereton when you include the alley. If someone wants to hike in the de-mapped woods to look for the retaining wall, that might be the best bet!
