Those Places Thursday - 7116 Townsend, Urbandale, Iowa


Those Places Thursday - 7116 Townsend, Urbandale, Iowa





We moved into this house in the Fall of 1970, as the first occupants. This photo was taken just a few years ago. We added the deck on the front - a new concept, at the time - by the time we left, in Summer 1983, there were 'front decks' all over town! The trees were not there when we lived there.


This is a copy of the photo Allison took this year, 2012, on her 4th of July, 30th Urbandale High School Class Reunion trip. Thanks, Allison! Both the house and the neighborhood seem to be showing some deterioration, sadly.


Families are Forever!  ;-)

  1. I remember you moving into this house. No moving trucks this time. It was Glenn and Pete with their farm pickups.
