Speaking of then & now shots….when I was taking the photos of the lawn, the laundry was hanging & it reminded me of an old photo that we have of the house.
This photo was probably taken in the late 1930s, maybe early 1940s. The photographer was (I think) employed through FDRs Works Progress Administration, which paid artists, photographers, and writers to canvass the country, create art, and write place guides. (Can you imagine that happening now? HAH HAH HAH)
I took a photo from about the same angle so I could compare the two, and converted it to black and white.
In both the photos, our house is the one on the left with the laundry line coming from it.
