Thanks to GeneaBloggers and Amy Coffin of the We Tree blog for these prompts.
Week 4: Home. Describe the house in which you grew up. Was it big or small? What made it unique? Is it still there today?
I'm using the same photos, again, because they show our house, as well as our cars!
In this first one, you see the house as it was during the 40s, with the old porch on the right. In about 1948, the old porch was replaced with the "New Porch" which was an extensive "family room" - Fireplace and bookcases on the far end, on the right, in the photo below.
This one is the family standing in front of the fireplace - bookcases on both sides. About 1954-5. Love that Motorola TV, as well!
The house, on the farm, has been gone more than a decade. The farm is no longer in the family, either... near Coon Rapids, in Greene Co, Iowa.
Families are Forever! ;-)
