This was farm house my Grandmother and Grandpa are in kitchen as posted earlier . Looks a lot like your house Walksoft :-) But this is back of house and only old photo I have of it .

    It looks very much like my house, a 1 & 1/2 story. I like looking at photos of old houses as you can usually tell how additions were put on as the family grew or times were more prosperous. The house may have started out like mine as only the part in back of photo. Then the piece with the veranda was added & later a lean-to was added on the back. You can also see were the door was originally, & the old roof line above that.

    Yes the house was added on to and we called that room the corral :-) It housed the freezer and some baby animals to stay warm if they were not in kitchen keeping warm in old wood burning stove and would feed the baby pigs ect right in kitchen from bottles during winter . I have some others of old farm in family too Walksoft .

    I love these old places... 'no place like home' type of things.. my granny's house is gone now, but I did get to go thru it tho it was crumbling down but I did found a few trinket treasures that had been left behind, 2 of the stairs were missing but I gently stepped over them, made a safe journey up to the attic area! I could almost close my eyes and see the cloth on the kitchen table covering the left over biscuits and sausage from breakfast, yum! It always was so homey there.. the sitting room was neat.. the 'fancy' room in the house..I remember the day I got up on the coffee table, it was pretty and I only wanted a closer look, glass top's suspended over the carved top's...NOT a good thing for a little girl to step on.. needless to say I was IN TROUBLE! :)

    I can almost smell homemade bread. My grandmas house always smelled like homemade bread.
  11. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    nldionne yes the homemade bread was always on counter and my grandmothers homemade jam . She still cooked her bread in the old wood stove it was the best . She had a electric one next to it but used the woodstove for making bread . I don't think there is many things that smell as goood as bread baking :-))))) Maybe we should make a perfume that smells like it or a air freshner spray even better !

    Totally missed this before, really love the picture of the house. Is it a farm or a town photo ?
  13. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    Hi Phil welcome back ! It is a farm house you can't see the barn and fields from the angle of photo . The porch you see is actually side door not front of house . This is where I learned as a kid to milk a cow and be a farmer :-) I also fell out the upstairs window at 10 and thought I died :-( I could hear my grandpa say is she dead and in my mind I said yes. I was in coma for a day and hospitalized. Funny I never grew taller after that fall . Good thing I was not younger . Many memories of the farm . My farm I had is on a different post . We missed you ! xo
