McKnew/Schaffner/Leland Houses in 2010 -- Post 426 for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

I'm posting old (and sometimes new) family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be wordless posts like others do - I am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here are some of the most precious (to me) images from my Seaver/Leland photograph collection:

At Christmas 2010, Linda and I went up to the Bay area to visit our daughter's family in Santa Cruz, see the sights of San Francisco, and visit her brother in Monte Rio.

1)  I had just figured out her Whittle line, and so we wanted to find the house that her great-grandparents Jane (Whittle) and Elijah McKnew lived in in the 1900 to 1920 time frame, including the 1906 earthquake.  Here is a photo of the house at 4131 19th Street where they resided in 1910, 100 years before we took this photo:

4131 19th Street is the house that Linda is standing in front of.  To the right is 4135/4137 19th Street which the McKnew family also owned.

2)  We also stopped by the 46 Rivoli Street house where Linda's grandparents, Paul and Edna (McKnew) Schaffner resided from about 1910 to 1974 when Edna died:


3)  We also stopped by the house in the Sunset District in San Francisco where Edna (Schaffner) and Lee Leland spent most of their married life at 1726 47th Avenue.  Linda grew up in this house:

Stay tuned for another walk down memory lane on Wordless Wednesday with Randy!
