Vintage landscape: small side porch

Hill Plantation, Wilkes County, Georgia, 1939 or 1944, by Frances Benjamin Johnston, via Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division.

I love the latticework on this old side porch.

    1. I’m sure that’s an indication of owners who were once well off and then, around 1940, rather poor. The original steps rotted before the latticework. (The old bootscraper is still in place.)

      I know I would fall off the steps in the picture.

      I can’t find anything on the web to tell me if whether the house still exists.

      1. If you click ‘via’ above and then the link to more photos for Wilkes County, Georgia, you can see more photos of the Hill Plantation. The front steps, which may be original, were not in good shape either.
