(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 147: Carringer House Framing in 1951

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 the first picture I have of the house built by Lyle and Emily (Auble) Carringer, my grandparents, on Point Loma in San Diego in 1951.  The address is 825 Harbor View Place, right at the foot of Lucinda Street, and the intersection of Harbor View Place and Armada Terrace is just to the right of this picture.  The house was built on a pie-slice shaped lot subdivided from the older redwood home to the left in the photograph. 

There are thee automobiles shown in this photograph - my guess is that one of them was my grandfather's car.  I recall that he had either a Studebaker or a Hudson in this time period.  I looked at a web page with photos of old Studebakers ( and think that the light colored car in the photo above is very similar to a 1948 Studebaker Commander Land Cruiser Sedan.  However, I'm not sure that this is the Carringer car.  I have not found another photograph of this car yet in the family collection, but have photos of another car in this same time period in the collection.
