Took some work to construct all that curving railing and lattice work. Always love the houses with the designs on their porch posts. I see there is a fruit orchard established nicely in the right side.

err-a ... How many bikes can you see ?

I dunno, Steve, those might be porch chairs, wicker, perhaps? But I like the way ya think!

what a great, neighborly porch

Evidently, back then, stairs did not need a rail to pass final inspection. Although, I see they were removed from the Strawberry Field photo.
I wonder where the well worn path leads off to? Down the hill to the river?
And no barn or stable in sight.
Do you think they had a dug well or access to the springs on the hillside?

I'm always astounded at how much you can see in the low-res photos that I miss in the high-res. Steve is absolutely correct-- there are two bicycles on the porch. I will post some details later, but I can clearly see the wheels and handlebars.

Oh wow, I kept trying to put handlebars on them, but couldn't seem 'em. Nicely done All!

Here's a detail from the porch so you can see Steve's bicycle:

This morning, my husband had an appointment at HR Hospital. I dropped him off at the door and then drove across the street to the Parking Garage.
Sitting up on the top level, you can look down over the area of today's photo, and you can look southwest at the spot of the Stranahan home that we saw a few days ago in photo #997 and perhaps the backside area of the Tucker home in photo #999.
Interesting to sit there and ponder what it looked like over a 100 years ago.
