Special Picture # 336 – Trumbull House – Then and Now – Side Patio –

Recently I spent a night in the Trumbull House visiting with Paulette – Aunt Chiche to family and friends – and took quite a few pictures. For the next few Saturdays I will be posting pictures taken during this stay as well as older pictures of similar places taken over the years, when I have them. I hope you enjoy.

  1. Photographs bring forgotten memories alive again. No wonder we treasure them.

      Maureen – I have been blessed with hundreds of old pictures. I wonder how many of the pictures taken on today’s phones will be around in 20 – 50 – 100 years? I truly believe that if you want to keep a picture, the only way is the old-fashioned way – on paper. All of the pictures my Grandpa took are over 120 years old. I think he got a camera when he was 8 or 9 and recorded himself (using a mirror), his family, his home, school, church and the surrounding land.They help me picture the world he grew up in, much easier than trying to imagine what things looked like from descriptive words.

    I like the yellow paint. When can we see lilacs in bloom? :D
