Modern Chairs!

Good to see some things dont go out of style! I have some wood backyard chairs that are very similar to the ones in the yard (right hand side of picture)!

High water mark?

that 1937 Ohio River Flood was a doozy, as the flotsam scattered about gives evidence. I'm looking for a high-water mark on the building but don't see one. Maybe halfway up the shed wall on the far left? But that doesn't seem high enough.

The Bones Look Good

Actually, it seems like a beautiful house under all the old vines and the debris.

Hope they were able to save it....
