This photographic print, taken by a Portage photographer around the turn of the twentieth century, is mounted on matboard and features the residence of then-owner, Dr. A. Schloemilch. This clapboard construction features Italianate architectural construction. This is seen in the low pitched roof, vertical emphasis, arched window casings, and front and side entryway veranda with chamfered posts. Albert Schloemilch was one of several doctors in the Portage area, at the turn of the twentieth century. The annotation, located at the bottom left-hand corner of the object, lists the 1952 resident of this dwelling as J.W. Robinson.
