Readers, Welcome to my blog (formerly Birds, Blooms, Books, etc). I'm entering a new decade - my 70th and taking on the challenge of moving from Maryland after living there 46 years and learning about my new home here in New England in the Live Free or Die state - New Hampshire. Join me as a write this new chapter of my life.

Even More Old Photos

The historical society has some old photos of some of the houses along my road.  Thought you'd like to see the comparison. Unfortunately these photos are undated.

The first one is very much the same from past to present.

The second one has a barn removed in present photo and has been added on to.

The third has been altered quite a bit.

On another street is a former store that is now three apartments.

 Trees were in the way so I couldn't take the photo at the same angle.

And here's the hotel again with our house to the right.  I took the same photo for a present day comparison. The store there now which is closed is at a different angle than what the hotel was.

The road has also been altered because the hotel was on our road but the present store is on the intersecting road, 

We are having fun learning about the history of our new home.  More research to come in the next month.

I have always thought that old photos are interesting. You certainly do live in a historic little town. Have a good week and a Happy Thanksgiving!

The photos make an interesting comparison. It's just a pity they aren't dated.

Sometimes I get a little lost wondering if I am supposed to look at the above photo or the below one., but I think I figured it out,

Interesting to see the changes (and the lack of changes in the first photo).
