A Walk from the Past...


In the mid 1930's some other alleged old house nut took pictures of the same houses I have snapped.





(Well, Actually...I have never posted this house...there are always cars parked out front. One day I will get a shot with out the cars. The house is a little different with part of the porch enclosed. I do still covet the door and side lights every time I pass it. And look at the dormer windows....Beauts!!)






But wait....
In the 1930's, these house's weren't that old. So this must have been just a house nut. Not an old house nut.

(This house was built in the late 20's. It replaced a grand Victorian. One of the magnolias is still there today. Just bigger of''course.)


(It is the magnolia on the left...Not in this shot.)



This person walked down the same street (our street)talking pictures. I wonder if folks looked at them weird, like they look at me?


(This home is 2 houses down from ThirteenEleven. It too was built in the late 20's. )


(I did not know it had lower windows to the left...)







See those trees in the back....That is our back yard. Yep! The Kudzu Jungle.





When I got to this house....I just could not place it.... I thought...."It looks familiar??...." Then I went to the front porch, and looked across the street. BLONDE MOMENT! Again.....



Well , Sorry to say....there is not snow in July in Georgia.

This picture is from January. It fit in....

Sadly...This photographer did not think much about an ol' bungalow. Our house was left out. The neighbor's house on our other side was not yet built.

Jenni, you nut! This is really funny - and the pictures are terrific.

That's so cool! Too bad they didn't get 1311, though.

Don't give up, you will find a picture of your house eventually. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you.

My next mission is to find out who took these pics. Cause I bet there are more out there...somewhere from this same snowy day in the 30's. They were just not placed on the web site.

Those pics are so cool, but I'm kinda bummed they didn't get one of your house.

In 1914 a postcard company came and took pictures of all the larger homes and businesses in Buford (including ours). We have a picture of both ours and the Masonic Lodge at the end of the shirt...it's so strange looking at these two postcards taken on the same day all those years ago. :-)
