Christina's World

If the camera would pan back, I could picture a girl in a pink dress, lying in the tall grass, gazing at this house.

Leaning Tower of Chimney

Tuckpointing anyone?

Badlands

It looks like a setting from the Starkweather Spree.

Foursquare and Seven Years Ago ...

The good old American Foursquare House.

Very popular as farmhouses in the rural area. Made maximum use of space. Nothing wasted on details, gables, turrets, etc. From the looks of the two uprights slightly inboard of the front corner there was probably a porch at one time that was removed when it started to collapse.

Usually 4 bedrooms upstairs with 2 windows in each room for cross ventilation, a parlor, kitchen, a dining room that could have been used as an extra bedroom for the grandparents or parents if there was a large number of kids, and maybe a bath down.
