Subject: [CR]identifying a wb hurlow frame

hello folks. i purchased a bicycle the other day at a bicycle swap meet outside of philly and i am having a bit of trouble trying to identify the frame.
     the frame is a steel condor frame, model unknown. i can see some worn condor decals and the reynolds 531 sticker is still visible. it is spaced 130 but i dont know the history ofthis frame so perhaps it was cold set at some point?? also, the lug work doesnt seem to be as fancy as other hurlow frames that i have seen photos of.
     i was told, after buying it that it was possibly a frame made by hurlow when he was the master builder at condor. i've been trying to figure out how i can definitively identify this as such.
    the serial printed on the bottom of the bb shell says 1956 with a smaller, perpendicular 5 stamped between the 5 and 6. i was wondering if anyone can tell me anything about this frame. thanks a lot. -eian
