(Original Images and Text, Copyright (c) 2011 Cynthia Shenette) These photos were taken about 1950. This is the house where I grew up in Worcester, MA. It was built about 1906. My grandparents bought the house in 1940, and it remained in the family until 1979.
I loved this house. It had a coal cellar and a root cellar in the basement and old (non-operational) gas jets which were used for lighting when the house was built. Ancient history to a ten-year-old in the 1970s.
My grandmother, Antonina (Bulak) Szerejko and dog friend.
