Thomas House


Thomas House


Sepia-toned image mounted on mat of a two-story, gabled home with the family standing in front of it. The house has a covered porch with Stick-style posts. Two women stand inside a wire fence; both wear shirtwaists and their hair up in full buns. A boy wearing long pants and a long-sleeved jacket sits on the fence, facing forward. A man stands on the boardwalk leading from the house to a gate in the wire fence; he wears a suit and has a mustache. A bush in full bloom covers the front entrance to the house, and a similar bush stands to the side of the porch. A boardwalk runs in front of the fence, and a salt-box style extension can be seen in the rear of the house.
