The Back of the 5th Street House

This is a follow-up on my post of July 23, 2011 where I wrote  of our move to the ''big house''. We have many happy memories associated with this house which are rekindled as we drive past it which we do frequently on our way up 5th street.  It is the only one of the 9 places we have lived during our married years that we see often. The fence was moved down from our "little house". It was made out of old plaster lath that came out of an old farm house that was being demolished. This picture was taken before Mr. Kemper built an arch-way for us that was placed over the walk between the house and the sidewalk and provided a support for climbing roses. While the front of the house was on 5th street, Lincoln was a narrow street on the side of the house.  It was a little used street as evidenced by having my Ford parked illegally. Driving past the old place brings back memories and so do pictures. Here is Carolyn with her 3 cakes for her 3rd birthday. The picture is also a reminder that Elaine still occasionally uses the tray that supports the cakes.
