Front Porch

This is a typical house of the late 19th century. The house is oriented toward the street - there's a front porch. People sat on the front porch and watched the street activity. The street did not carry that many vehicles, it was mostly used by people walking. The front of the house was the area for socializing and flowers. The back yard was for laundry and vegetables.
