1983 Beach Avenue

1983 Beach Avenue was on the north side of Beach Avenue, between Gilford Street and Chilco Street. Some sources from the late 1930s refer to this location as 1983-A Beach Avenue or 1983-B Beach Avenue.

The fire insurance plans do not show an individual building for this address. It appears to have been at the rear of the house that had addresses of 1985 Beach Avenue and 1987 Beach Avenue.
