more on Portland Conti 1933

122 Monument was also home to Richard Staires and Mrs. Mary Jennings.

In the 1932 City Valuation and Taxes section of the 1933 city dir, there are two listings:
Conti, Assunta $115.92
Conti, Nicolantonio $125.88

These assessments are either real estate or personal property taxes at a rate of $3.36 per $100. To give you a benchmark, one of my ancestors who owned a two-family house in this neighborhood was assessed $120. that year. If the Contis owned 122 Monument, then one of the above assessments who be about the right amount so they may have owned other property.
