This block [of Lloyd Avenue] has to serve as the poster child for block after block of streets each that stretch east from Prospect Street between Angell and Olney Streets. Filled with ample, comfortable houses, mostly identifiable as neither Queen Anne nor Colonial Revival but almost all of them dating from the era between the economic recovery following the Panic of 1873 and the First World War, this residential neighborhood is one of consistently interesting architecture, pristine maintenance, and fine landscaping. Among the interesting houses here are the Lindsay T. Damon House (1904), at 125 Lloyd, designed by Norman M. Isham in a loose seventeenth-century revival re-interpretation, and the delightful, asymmetrical, somewhat casual Colonial Revival Julius H. Preston House (1906) at 130 Lloyd.
