Here's a beauty, an excellent weathering reference for peeling paint and shake roof. Building was in Washington, DC. Photo taken in 1915 & image comes from Harris & Ewing Glass Negative. Is that a bird's nest above the window or an eave plant gone wild?

BTW, that's not me in the picture.


Closer view of door & window.

Most "bodacious"!....thanks for posting.

That plant looks like some kind of wierd growth right out of the original Star Trek series......or maybe a wasp nest that took hold behnd an old vine. Undecided

I saw this picture on Shorpy the other day and thought it would be a great modeling subject. I guess I was not alone.

Marc, I think those are perhaps swallows nests?? Pat

Great pic!

There's an old corrugated metal house in Austin, NV that has a very similar screendoor:

Nice pic Ray... it is interesting to see the similarities between the doors, kind of variations on a theme.
