Mansard roof mansion with greenhouse

This is one of those rare photos where there's just so much awesomeness going on you don't know where to look first! I wish I knew where this was. The cabinet photo was purchased in Salem, OR.

Craftsman home of Ivan Wells

Wonderful early view of a newly completed Craftsman home. Said to have been built by C.W. Knowles

Spectacular unknown Stick Style Victorian home

I just love these images of people in front of their house. The architecture is simple but there is a lot of detail in there. From the porch details to the stone foundation this photo has it all.

Court House in San Rafael California

Wonderful view of the original court house. I was unable to determine if this structure remains today but I have a feeling it is no longer around. I was able to find some images of the building in later years where it had lost the tower.

Draftsman's studio with Alonzo Finch

Wonderful early view of an architects, engineers, or draftsman's office. The man on the stool is identified as Alonzo Finch. Not sure who he is.

Large Victorian home and yard

This image is most likely Virginia or Maryland given the location I purchased it in. Nice real photo post card.

Small brick cottage with steel casement windows

Simple brick cottage with steel casement windows. Wish they still made these!

Family portrait in front of a Victorian home with picket fence

Slightly faded yes but a great image none the less. Note the porch brackets and the unusual exterior window screens.

Women on a great Victorian porch

I love the chunky-ness of the architecture. It's an old photo but the wood seems ever so perfectly weathered.

Large Victorian era family gathering with wallpaper

There's a LOT going on in this photo. We have a person with what looks like a chicken wing in his mouth, matching twins, boxing gloves for art and wallpaper wallpaper wallpaper. I see no light fixtures or lamps.....

Wonderful farmhouse with large garden

Nicely kept rows of edibles and flowers surround this simple farmhouse. Great original detail on the home.
