Dorchester Illustration of the Day no. 1738
In the past few days we have seen a couple of then-and-now sets of photos, and it was interesting to compare the exterior appearance of buildings in earlier times with the appearance of today. Today we have another set.
We saw the Gushee house and barn last week—the house at the dairy on Fuller Street. Today we show the house as it appeared about 1900 and along with a photo from 2012. The loss of shutters really changes the appearance of a building.
