The following is from the Historic Buildings Inventory as revised in 1985:

Physical appearance:   Minimal touches create a streamline feeling for this series of small rental units, each with minor decorative individuation.

Significance:   The collection of cottages creates a coherent street-scape and illustrates a vernacular interpretation of streamline styling. William Bateman, Jr., had them built for investments and they have remained in the same family to the present.
