Pictures of the house of one year.


Bergen Street

The lower picture is the front door. The upper picture is my turret room. When I read Daddy Longlegs years later I pictured Judy sitting on her padded dresser top in that tiny window.

UPDATE: This house was built by a doctor when the neighborhood was thriving. He also built two houses next door to this one for his married daughters. By the time we lived there, the neighborhood had fallen on hard times. So, though the house is fabulous, it was not (at that time) fabulously expensive. Now? Well, the neighborhood is having a renaissance, so who knows?

Oh, wow. I thought only people in books lived in places like that.

Great house! The way the lower picture is framed, it almost looks like it could be the entrance to a hobbit hole!
