INVENTORY FORM B CONTINUATION SHEET LEXINGTON 30 THERESA AVENUE <br /> MASSACHUSETTS HISTORICAL COMMISSION Area(s) Form No. <br /> 220 MORRISSEY BOULEVARD,BOSTON,MASSACHUSETTS 02125 <br /> 2274 <br /> Theresa Avenue was laid out by 1922, when there were only three houses on the street, all unnumbered. Based on its style, 30 <br /> Theresa Avenue might have been one of these. The households on the street in 1922 included John A. Murray, a traveling <br /> salesman, and his wife Rose M.; Wensley Barker, a manager, and his wife Christine; and James Irwin, Jr., a carpenter, and his <br /> wife Mary. 30 Theresa Avenue is first depicted on the Sanborn maps in 1927, when it appears with a one-story accessory <br /> building, likely a (non-extant) garage, which was set at an angle to the street, parallel to the west property line. <br /> The first known residents of 30 Theresa Avenue were Francis A. (Frank)Anderson and his wife Gladys F., who moved here from <br /> Arlington between 1923 and 1926. In 1930, Francis and Gladys lived here with their two young sons and Francis's <br /> septuagenarian uncle, Francis H. Andrews. Francis Anderson was born in Canada; his employment while living in this house <br /> was described as dairy foreman in a milk business, milkman, and milk dealer. From at least 1945 through 1955, 30 Theresa <br /> Avenue was occupied by Albert E. Bertini, employed as a foreman and later a truckman, and his wife Lillian. By 1965, Pasquale <br /> Tramontozzi, a teacher, and his wife Grace B., a secretary, were living here. <br /> BIBLIOGRAPHY and/or REFERENCES <br /> Arlington Directories: 1923. <br /> Historic maps and atlases: Walling 1853; Beers 1875; Walker 1889; Stadly 1898; Walker 1906; Sanborn 1908, 1918, 1927, <br /> 1935, 1935/1950. <br /> Lexington Comprehensive Cultural Resources Survey, Period and Area Summaries. <br /> Accessed Jul 23, 2015. <br /> Lexington Directories: 1899, 1908-09, 1922, 1930, 1934, 1936, 1942. <br /> Lexington List of Persons: 1935, 1945, 1955, 1965. <br /> Massachusetts Historical Commission.
