Arlene and Robert Whitlatch Photograph Gallery

Many pictures of 2621 E. Pinchot Avenue, and the surrounding area.

Arlene (nee Gray) and Robert Whitlatch were long-time residents of the Phoenix Homesteads neighborhood, living in the house in which she grew up.

Arlene Whitlatch's parents Louis M. and Pansy Gray, were original residents of the Phoenix Homesteads neighborhood, living in the house at 2621 E. Pinchot Avenue. Below are photographs of the family home, exteriors and interiors, the semi-rural neighborhood, and their two sons Paul and Roy and daughter Arlene (b. 1939). Many show Arlene with dolls and pets, at parties, and in her playhouse.

Pansy Gray was the photographer for most of the images; her son became a professional photographer as an adult and some of the images are by him.
