The Wooden House Project
Elizabeth of The Wooden House Project blog emailed me a link to her recent post featuring a vintage look at Humboldt Street between Herbert and Richardson. I grew up just a few short blocks away at 657, so Humboldt always has a special place in my heart. I absolutely LOVE when people post old photos and then take the time and care to take modern day shots as comparison. It always makes for a wonderful and interesting piece.
