  2. There is so much to say about this series pictures that I will just say - Thank You, the pictures are much appreciated. I did kinda wonder what the original owners of the first home pictured would have said if they'd seen that contrail overhead.

    1. I'd guess that the family that built that house earned the money in shipping or something related. So when told that this white line in the sky came from a flying machine that carries people and goods to distant places, they might ask if their descendants are involved in that business as well, and if not, why not?

    2. In our family we call them, "The Silver Tube of Death."

  3. My very favorite thing to do when I visit New England is to drive around and take photos of wooden houses. I come home with loads of house photos! I absolutely love them, so this post was such a treat for me. Thank you!

  4. "Beautiful" is such an overused adjective, but in cases like this series, it's the one to use.

  8. Lovely houses.

    Noticed the majority did not have storm doors over the front door.

    Yes, it would not be historically correct.
    Here in the Midwest, almost all houses have them, even the older ones.
