C.F. and Minnie V. Kryder answered this ad:

Streets through Kryder's Addition, Fort Wayne, Indiana. The Kryders were some of the very few investors who risked their personal capital to build houses in Fort Wayne following World War I. No one really wanted to take a chance, but without housing for soldiers returning from the War, there would have been no new growth for the City of Fort Wayne.
