This ole house

This is another of the wonderful images from the same collection as the last post. This one is from a place that commenters say is now practically downtown Houston, though in May of 1943 it doesn't appear to be quite the busy street that it likely is now.

I like the wraparound porches, the turret, the laundry, the spilling over of the baskets of fruit to the front of the house and the soft drink advertising on the store. I like the delivery wagon and the horse. The composition is excellent.

  1. A most enjoyable collection. Most of these photo could have been taken in and around the town in which I was born and grew-up. The clothing, the buildings, the fair grounds and the people all look like I remember them when I was very young. Good post.
