Circa 1940 pictures


Visiting the town of St Mary's Archives and Museum, I was pleased to find some information on our house and two lovely pictures, probably taken in the 1940s. The balcony over the wrap-around porch is now long gone. Note the exterior storm doors have now been replaced by questionable glass doors. The original storm doors give more weight and visual importance to the entrance doors and are in proportion to the size of the house. These storm doors were found rotting away on the side of the house and have been salvaged, cleaned up, stripped and painted. They now hang as a headboard in our guest room.
