Snowed in

For the Sepia Saturday prompt, a snowy scene was selected (say that three times fast!). Again from my family collection, I have a lovely snowy scene, as well as the same house in summer time.


Snow in the yard


Green grass and babies

I like how the two angles give us a better idea of the shape of the house. It is likely one of the farm houses, either in Michigan or Delaware, but I’m thinking Michigan. The family owned a couple farms there before removing to Delaware and leaving the Michigan farms to Apa’s brothers to manage. Also, the babies were born in Michigan, giving me that as a time reference.

The lady in the snow is likely Ama (Edith A Nunn), and the two ladies on the grass are probably Ama and her mother, Harriet Sheldon.

For international snow, click over to Sepia Saturday. You will be happy you did!

    Ama is certainly well wrapped up for the weather. My daughter tells me that they have over a foot of snow in Michigan yesterday.

    No matter from which angle you look, there are trees everywhere. And that is nice all year round.

    I agree, great house, and I enjoy the summer shot.

      At first I thought it was two different houses. I’m glad to have these though. It’s nice to know where and how your people lived.

    I’m curious where in Michigan, (I was born and raised in Michigan) the style of that house is marvelous.

    The house seems so despolate in winter, and yet surprisingly warm with an ivy cladding in the summer.

    One house, two views, two seasons. Love it. I love the line about “international snow” as well.

    The two views do show an almost different aspect of the character of the house.

    I wonder where Ama is off to? Is that a lunch pail she is holding? Nice o ave these two views of the house.

    Look at those vines! Wonderful old photos! :)

    That would be a cool house in summer with the vines, but an even colder one in winter. A good contrast for the Sepia Saturday theme.

    I love the contrast of the vines in winter and summer.

    Lovely house.
    None of that cookie cutter bu..siness we have nowadays.
