You may remember seeing this fine Queen Anne style house, known as the "Jewell House," located on Grandview Avenue on Wollaston Hill. I posted it in black and white here as a Monochrome Monday post. Which do you like better?
The second photo was taken last night at an excellent talk about historic Quincy houses that was given by Reference Librarian, Mary Clark at one of my favorite haunts, the Thomas Crane Library. Mary is showing the audience a volume from the Quincy Historical and Architectural Survey that was completed in 1986. The online version has been an invaluable resource for my Thursday "This Old House" series. You can view it here. I was pleasantly surprised to see that Mary incorporated many of the house images from my Thursday series into her talk. I wanted this blog to offer something worthwhile to my community and it was nice to get proof that it has.
Welcome new visitors to Quincy Daily Photo . . . enjoy!
