We are told this house is in Carrick somewhere. Can you find it? -

Anna Dorset (nee Jackson) writes about this house: My sister and I both believe that the mystery house in Carrick is her old house. Address is 46 Clifton Blvd. Directly behind her house is Birmingham Cemetery. The two small trees on either side of the sidewalk approaching the front porch were weeping mulberry trees. It was owned in the late 1960's by 2 brothers named Meyer or Meyers. My sister's last name at her time of ownership (early 1970's) was Sauerland. Lovely home with a stained glass window in bathroom, pocket doors separating living and dining rooms, and very ornate beveled leaded glass front door and side lights.
