I've been looking at a lot of Verne Morton Photos. Verne Morton was a photographer in Groton, New York in the early 1900's and he took a lot of photos of this area. You can actually see a photo of our house in one of his photos. (Click on the second to the last photo. It's the one with the two girls having a tea party.) One of the things that I find really interesting about his photos is that it shows how life was during this time. Some of the photos are dead rats, or kids carrying a dead wood chuck home down a dirt road. I love these photos.
I'm starting a campaign to have photographers think twice about removing telephone lines and/or electric lines from their photos. I think that they will eventually become more of a thing of the past. Photos can help preserve the past.
