This is an old photo of my house being moved on to it's foundation. I think the car being used is a model T, but I have no idea of the year. I know that my mother was born in that house in 1922, so the photo, and the "T", are at least that old. Off topic, but the house was an old one room school house that was being moved to be used by my family as their house. It was probably at least 50 years old at the time of this photo. Currently I am the 4th generation to live in the house, and most likely the last as my kids have no interest keeping it in the family.
From what I can see it looks like T 1919-1922.
Norm, can you post a currant picture?
Sorry, I meant Gus.
Kind of cold here in Michigan to get creative right now so I just ran out and snapped a quick picture with my phone.
Thanks Gus, the house looked bigger on the first picture. Sorry I made you go out in the cold. You are probably the same temp as I which is 15 below.
I wonder if, to have the gearing it would take to move a house, the T had a Warford or at least a Ruxtell?
I think the T just happens to be in the picture. A lot of folks don't realize how common "house moving" was "in the old days". Two rooms of our house were the Thomas, Id post office from 1890 to 1895. When it became defunct, the first owner bought the building and moved it three miles to use for a house when he "proved up" on this quarter section in 1895.
It would be my thought the car was only parked there?Bud.
When I was about 11 I helped my dad move a house about that size. It was just about 100 yards but we used his 1960 chevy wagon with 3 speed and straight 6. Once on logs as rollers it doesnt take much effort.
