They apparently now had a family of renters - Head of that household was Helen Clancy aged 31 with no occupation - Helen was born in New York but her father was born in Ireland and her mother was born in Scotland - it appears her sisters lived with her Rose aged 29, Anna aged 21 and Mary aged 19 - Rose, Anna and Mary were all telephone operators. This household? has a boarder listed as Helen Bree who was also a telephone operator aged 22.

From this I would assume that the Wilke's were renting out either the first or second story of their home - it is listed as the same house number (179) but as a different household number visited (528)
