following photos were taken by James MacAfee. He passed on this
"They were taken in August, 1967. My Grandmother took the photos and had no flash so no indoor photos. I spent an hour inside. House was empty but still fully intact. I distinctly remember several things:
1) It was the first house in which I saw old fashion push-button electric light switches.
2) There was a wooden spiral staircase to the attic. The wood steps were thin enough that I remember stepping up against the center pole to reduce my weight on each step in case they were rotten. (They were not)
3) The fireplace mantel was extremely impressive.
4) There was a single new looking plastic flower
on Lad's grave."
