1 Leslie Lane

My Aunt Lillian and Uncle Ed lived in this home until their death. They raised four children. Recently while I was geotagging photos, I discovered that the Google Street view camera had captured an image of the house that was built on the same lot.

The Fork in the Road

Sadly I've come to the end of series of glass plate negatives taken in New Ipswich and the surrounding towns. Thanks to all of my readers who have assisted me with identifying properties shown in the photos. I plan to update some of the postings with recent photo whenever possible.

It seems fitting that the final image would be a fork in the road. 

No GPS when this photo was taken

House and Barn

I was taken with how contemporary this home looks, even though the photo was probably taken 100 years ago. The only thing missing is a driveway and power lines.
