About noon one February day in 1917, when Mom was in second grade, she and her older sister were walking home for lunch when they found their house on fire. A couple of their older brothers had been fixing lunch and the fire got away from them. The old house was a total loss, and their dad started building a new one. Here it is about 1929 with the living room and the upstairs rear bedrooms under construction.
Of the four cars, I think the touring in front of the house is the only one showing well enough for possible identification. Any ideas?
Is that the house you are roofing and repairing now?
Yep, that's the one. The roof is done, the outside should be done this year, and then I'll get busy on the inside.
