Number One

111 Normal photo

The building is an historic home built c.1880 in Ypsilanti, Michigan.  I have done a significant amount of research on this house in the local archives for my classes (in historic architecture) and for my own curiosity and used a combination of modern photos and historic photos of the home to create this picture.  The address is 111 North Normal Street – the repetition of the number was what inspired me. It’s actually the apartment building in which I currently live. (I’m in the roof!)

Also, the women standing on the porch from one of the historic photos are the mother and daughter of the family who originally lived in the home – a #1 for the house.
