Our House in History

A delightful little book of our town's history was just published (big thanks to Lesa Tanner & the Graton Community Club), including this photo of our house taken in 1936. The following picture is as it looks today. You can see that camellia bushes appear to swallow the porch (actually one of them reached all the way to the peak when we moved in)... we like the visual buffer from the street which they provide, but it may be time to prune them back some more.
The final photo shows the building down the street which now houses my studio-- in its earlier life as an apple processing plant.

AS I vaguely remember that willow tree you can see through the porch in the old photo was still there when we moved in (this the across the street neighbor writing) in the late 70's.

It appears that the water tower must have been in what is now Eric's backyard! I notice that the house on the corner of Donald and Edison (now occupied by the reclusive old man) was also apparently there in the 30's as well. I wonder what a house would have cost here in the 1936?

Pretty cool to have a photo like that. Wish I had a photo of the house I live in now.
