I recognized this as Sears house from the back when I was leisurely strolling around Park Ridge one day. Just something about the proportions or the line of the roof... When I walked around the block I discovered it was a Sears Maywood.

The Sears Maywood was first sold in 1927, and this one was built between 1927-1929. I believe the original owners were Leon and Mae Fiset. Leon was an embosser. Leon died in 1933, and Mae moved to Chicago around 1935.
