Post A Week 4/14/2014
I know that this challenge was couple of weeks ago. I shot this picture last week while we were in Tunica, Mississippi but I didn’t have my card reader with me.I shot this picture especially for this challenge. So I said to myself what the heck I’m going to post it anyway.
Then I thought I couldn’t show just one, so I put together a few more. Hopefully to entertain your eyes.
This beautiful Victorian house is in Eureka,California I have admired it for many years every time I would go North on Vacation, which was at least once a year from 1970 to 1997. It was built for William Carson it took over one hundred men over two years to construct. This Victorian house is called the Carson Mansion. I have many photographs but one in particular that I love BUT I’ll have to look for it.
Last week the challenge was monuments and I posted about Powder Works Gun Powder. Then it became cotton mill. The Company had a few houses for employees, they were called Shot Gun Houses. A “shotgun house” is a narrow rectangular domestic residence, usually no more than 12 feet (3.5 m) wide, with rooms arranged one behind the other and doors at each end of the house. It was the most popular style of house in the Southern United States from the end of the American Civil War (1861–65), through the 1920s. I got this information – From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia – The threshold to life for some.
