The apartment building was owned by Katherine Kerrigan, who also owned the home next door at 5153 Shafter Avenue (not shown). Her son, Walter Kerrigan, built the apartment building after his father died. Income from the apartment rentals helped Mrs. Kerrigan support her seven young children. Teddy Breschi is shown washing her 1941 Chevy. Teddy's husband, Leo Breschi, and his family, owned Breschi's Department Store at 4834 Telegraph Avenue in Temescal. [Spencer Kerrigan note]
