(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 145: The Lyle Carringer House in 1922

I'm posting family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be Wordless Wednesday posts like others do - I simply am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here is a photograph from the Seaver//Carringer family collection handed down by my mother in the 1988 to 2002 time period:

This is a photograph of the house and garage at 2130 Fern Street in San Diego built by Lyle and Emily (Auble) Carringer in 1920 on the same block as the house that Lyle grew up in at 2105 30th Street.  In the photo above, the entry steps and front door face the street.  You can see another view of the front entry steps in Wordly Wednesday: Family Photographs - Post 69: The First Boy Friend?

The current house is shown in the last image in Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -- Your ancestral home.  The entry way faces south now, and the side of the house facing the street is protected by a wall.

How do I know when this photograph was taken?  My best clue is the little girl on the tricycle - which I showed also in a close-up view Family Photographs - Post 65: Betty's Trike.  That's my mother, Betty Virginia Carringer at about age 3, making it 1922 or 1923.
