We bought our house in 2002 and it's been a project ever since. This year she turns 100! And since she already looks like a cake with the pink scallops of stucco, I thought she deserved a candle on top. Born in 1915, our house was originally the neighborhood butcher shop, with living quarters upstairs. At that time there was a trolley line in front. The garage was added somewhere between 1936 and 1949 according to WPA photos. The butcher shop is now my studio, but the bell on the door is still there. Cent' anni pinky!
