house of yesteryear


loving this - a neighbor popped round last weekend to drop in an old photograph of our house from around the early 1900's. the buildings shown in the picture are three separate houses and our bit is kind of in the middle. originally it used to be the village shop and i imagine this strange, almost floating lady would have worked here. i have some more of these somewhere, passed on to us from the previous owners, as we are the first people to have owned it in over 150 years they were able to pass on a lot of history to us and it's so lovely to see how it all used to look...
