This weekend I will be posting more pictures of the Trumbull House, some taken many years ago and some quite recent. This is the front view.
This picture was taken in 1925. The children Lad, Ced, Biss and Dick, are playing on the dirt road near the front steps. Notice the lack of decorative stones on the facing of each step. They are quite obvious in the next photo.
This picture was taken around 1929. Dave, front row, second from the left, was born in 1925 and he looks about four years old.
This picture was probably taken some time between 1930 and 1950. I believe I can see the screen porch to the right of the front door, which was enclosed in 1950. You can also see the addition of the stone pillars on both sides of the steps.
I cannot date this picture (probably some time between 1950 (when the porch was enclosed) and 2000. The big trees are both missing in front of the main door.
I took this picture in June of 2020 while visiting “Aunt Chiche”, Mrs. Daniel Beck Guion.
Tomorrow, more “Then and Now” views of the Trumbull House.
