Based on the roofline of this house, I believe the left side of this house (the side with the electric meter base) is the original front of the house. The projecting smaller gable with the four windows is likely a 1930s or 1940s addition to orient the house towards the street. Although the tax office gives the build year as 1921, its orientation away from the street (and at an angle to the street) implies to me that perhaps this house predated the establishment of the rest of the houses in the Riley-Ashe-South pocket, which may have been moved to their locations.
