Research is fun - no matter where you do it. I especially love research at the library. And I've been known to spend a lot of time searching online sources from home. This time, though, our successful research started at the Hair Shed.
Through my hair stylist, we are lucky to meet Margaret, a descendant of the family who owned the lot before our house was built. Sadly, this grand Victorian house burned around 1910, four years before the 1914 construction of our bungalow. Here's how it stood proudly on our corner lot in 1907.

Yours in researching our house and meeting our neighbors,
