For years I’ve been updating the header on Let’s Face the Music with similar shots of the house as it has evolved.
The first photos were from March, 2011, when Let’s Face the Music began.
A more recent header shows the east side of The Glade with the new additions. From the front the house hasn’t changed much. The major changes have mostly affected the back per our agreement with the historical commission.
Recently I found a 1993 photo of The Glade online.
I didn’t move in until 1997. The tree on the right in the 2015 photo is the same one in the middle of the 1997 photo. The pictures were taken at slightly different angles. The smaller diameter tree, a dogwood, is also still there but unfortunately seems to be dying.
The newest header is a combination of the earliest photo I have of The Glade (1993) and a recent shot from almost the same angle. By the time we purchased the house in 1997, the large bushes near the corners of the house had already been removed. Over the years most of the fence posts had rotted away so we removed it also.
Do you have photos of your house before you lived there?
