Those Places Thursday - West Branch I



Those Places Thursday - West Branch I





This photo, that shows up on Easters, from time to time, is from April 1969. It is inside the little brown house we lived in for several months as our new house was being build - we'll see it next week. I have not found a photo of the outside of this little house, but nothing much lost.

We moved here from Schenectady, NY, to West Branch, IA, near Iowa City. West Branch, of course, is the birthplace of Herbert Hoover and site of his Presidential Library and Museum. The front of the museum, in the link, faces east. Walk perhaps six blocks east and a couple south, and you would be at our little house. It was on a side hill... I suspect you could see it, if you stood outside the house behind where Annette sits in the photo above. This is a classic photo of Allison, holding the egg. So neat! ;-)


Families are Forever! ;-)

  4. Double for sure, Allison. The accordian door was 'right down the middle' it seemed like. ;-)
