Questions for Map 2

1. Study the map and captions about Auburn Avenue residents. How would you describe Taft's neighborhood? How might this neighborhood compare to their downtown residence?

2. Note the church and fire house. Does your neighborhood have public buildings? Where would you find these types of structures today? How does the Mount Auburn Fire House differ from modern fire stations?
