One advantage of our house on William St is that I could get to The Oval in less than 30 seconds. In the first photo below my grandmother is standing in front of my secret passageway to The Oval. Squeeze through the opening between the tall white picket fence and the concrete block garage, scoot along the side of that white frame garage, run down the homeowner's driveway and I was immediately on Grove Place across from the Grove Place entrance to The Oval.
