The D.J. Carringer House in San Diego in 1900 -- Post 297 for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

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

Here is a photograph of an ancestral home taken by a photographer in San Diego, California:

This is the house of David Jackson (D.J.) and Rebecca (Spangler) Carringer on the northwestern corner of Ella Street (north-south) and Horton Street (east-west) - presently 30th and Ivy Streets.  The entry steps face south, on what is now Ivy Street. 

The photo was taken in about 1900.  D.J. and Rebecca are enumerated in the 1900 U.S. census at this location.

The persons in this picture are (from left):

*  Harvey Edgar Carringer (1852-1946), son of D.J. and Rebecca Carringer, seated on porch.
*  Lyle Lawrence Carringer (1891-1976), son of Austin and Della Carringer, and grandson of D.J. and Rebecca Carringer (seated on top step of the porch)
*  David Jackson (D.J.) Carringer (1828-1902), husband of Rebecca, and father of Edgar and Austin; standing on the porch in the center of the picture.
*  Rebecca (Spangler) Carringer (1832-1901), wife of D.J., mother of Edgar and Austin; standing on the porch to the right of D.J.
*  Henry Austin Carringer (1853-1946), son of D.J. and Rebecca Carringer, husband of Della, and father of Lyle; standing on the ground to the right of Rebecca.
*  Della (Smith) Carringer (1862-1944), wife of Austin and mother of Lyle; standing on the right side of the house.

There is some handwriting at the top of the photo, which is in the hand of Lyle Carringer.  It says:

"D.J. Carringer.  Cor. 30th & Ivy St"

As you can see, there are no other houses in this photograph.  The house of Austin and Della Carringer is on the next block to the south and east, at the corner of what is now 30th and Hawthorn Streets in San Diego.  

This house no longer exists - it was replaced decades ago by other houses.  This is the only photograph I have of this house.  It was probably taken by a professional photographer for the family.
