(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 143: The Carringer Home in 1925

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 photograph shows the Austin and Della (Smith) Carringer home at 2105 30th Street in San Diego (on the northeast corner of 30th Street and Hawthorn Street) in the 1925 time frame.  The sidewalks are in, the telephone and power poles are up, and the vegetation around the home is mature.  The palm tree in the front yard is fairly young, however. 

This home was built in about 1895, and I have posted photographs of it several times.  In 1926, the house was moved to the middle of the block and remodeled.  I have photos of the remodel too, and will show them in future pWordless Wednesday posts.
