331 Lighthouse Avenue


 

(Francis Nagle house, 1910).
Ed Ricketts lived here with his family in the mid 1920s.

It was a short walk to his lab on Fountain Avenue. Later, the family moved to a house at 221 4th Street and became the neighbors of Joseph Campbell, who became a noted interpreter of mythology. 



Continue on Lighthouse Avenue until you come to Eardley Avenue. Turn right, and up several blocks on the left is an ivy-covered fence. This is . . .
