CLOTHESLINES, BUT NO TREES: The peak-roofed housing units (top), latest to be erected at Willow Village, are generally well-tended and maintained. This view from the backyard of one row of units, looking toward the front porches of another, demonstrates the temporary nature of planning for the development. Note coal boxes and oil tanks near the front porches, the absence of natural foliage and the "community clothesline" in the backyard. Below is a view of older, flat-roofed apartment units in the so-called Clay Hill section of the Village. It emphasizes that the units were designed for temporary use and would deteriorate without constant maintenance.
