Next door to today's other house there's a derelict home

Who used to live here?

Probably nobody has walked inside in years.

 Interesting that the bigger tree was cut down, leaving the stump by the wall, but there's a new tree growing in the porch area, probably over 10 years old.

Oh the echoes of mothers doing the cooking, children chasing each other, smells of breakfast coffee...long gone.  The grandchildren may drive by every once in a while.  Maybe not.


  1. This sad old home was my post for the 16th, but I got my fingers confused and posted it also on 15th. Oh well.

  2. I'm sure this house was very grand in it's day. Sad to see it looking like this, but it does make for some interesting photos.

  3. It speaks to the good craftsmanship of the carpenters who built it, that it's still standing while the materials are decaying away.


Hi, I'm glad to publish your comments. Let's keep it civil, shall we?
