One of the fun parts of buying an old house is finding boxes full of cool stuff in the basement or attic... Old newspaper, Photos, random gadgets...etc. But because our house has been so thoroughly used over the years we have been void of pretty much all of that. Fortunately, some of the neighbors have been around long enough to help retain some of that history. - Like this incredible photograph of Ellen Kenna that one of them brought over soon after we moved in. It's one of the things we were really hoping to find when we bought the house, a picture of the woman who built it... and she couldn't be more perfect! We plan on getting this image blown up on a large canvas and mounted above the fireplace in the study.
