I do so enjoy photos of old homes.
The first photo is of my GreatGreatGrandParents House that burnt down in January of 1909 or 1911. It was an especially sad time for the family as on Christmas Eve their son died in a trolley accident.
They rebuilt and that is the new house in second photo.
The third photo, I'm not sure of, maybe a vacation photo from Canada. But that is just a guess.
The last photo, all I have to say, is, WOW. I don't know where it is, but I wanna know!

    Oh man, that was still a "new" house back in 1909! Really stunning style too. The one on the right is really neat as well. It looks like it might be on the water somewhere. It would be really neat if it was still there, buildings like that are almost never still standing.

    The house that burnt down I always thought was creepy looking, like bats should be flying out of chimney.
    The house in second photo is still there, and a single family home too! But it does not have that gorgeous lawn anymore! My GreatGrandMother built a house very similar to it when she was married also.
    I wish on water! But if that was so... then they would have no need for vacation homes! They are in Pennsylvania.

    All very beautiful homes, the last picture, looks like a house they just kept adding on to, and adding on !~

    The last house looks like it could be one of the victorian hotels built in Cape May New Jersey.They still maintain quite of few of these painted ladies.I stay at one every Fourth of July, the Peter Shields Inn.

    The Cape May/Lewis Ferry, I need to take that trip again! My Grandparents used to have a house in Bethany DE, but we now stay in Rehoboth.
    Good call on Cape May. It reminded me of a hotel I stayed in at Glacier Park MT. But it is probably a costal location since there are no hills/mountains. The photos that were found with this one had a very rocky beach and coast line so I was thinking it might be northern. Canada? East coast or west? I'm so curious!
    Cape May is lovely!
