Hi, Ed!

First, let me congratulate you for correctly guessing the neighborhood/location of Mystery Photo 175! I totally agree with Ellery that I, too, have never come across another house in the Bronx that "remotely" resembles the one in this photo. It looks more like a fancy "upscale" indoor/outdoor restaurant or catering hall that could accomodate possibly as many as one hundred people! My parents` wedding celebration, back in 1928, took place at a catering hall called "Chateau DeLuxe" on Prospect Avenue. I doubt if that is the same place, but I couldn`t help thinking that it might have originally been a catering hall before it became an enormous private house. Good luck with your guess, Ed!

Regards,
Sammy
