High resolution picture from 1950.

As per a previous request, here is an extremely high resolution picture of the front of the house from around 1950. Warning, the picture is big.


This picture is used with permission from the Carleton University Archives. On close inspection, you can see what appears to be cedar shingles between to the two upper front dormers, and the metal along the bottom of that area. Also, you can see the nice front windows that have all been replaced with PVC. It appears that they are casement (with 3x3 upper sashes), not double-hung like the rest of the windows in our house.


  1. Thanks. Of course, I'm no more enlightened or enlightening now.

  2. Great photos.
