The first place I lived was 5 Court Street in Farmington, Maine. I lived there until I was thirteen.
Dad built the camp using pieces of an old hotel that was being dismantled. The lights, doors, and windows are still being used. He designed and built the fireplace with fieldstone and stairs going up the side. Sadly until they raised the roof and added the back room, they couldn’t add the wooden part of the stairs and catwalked that they’d planned from the first.
This is the house in Winchester. It was only a 5 minute walk to school, or the train stations. I particularly loved the Wisteria. I had the front room with a fireplace, although I never actually used it.
This is a picture of Ælfwine in my dorm room 700 Comm Ave. I wonder how hard it was to repaint over those bright colors? Wish I could find a picture of the pan on the other side of the window and the knotwork dragon on the wall.
I need to find a picture from Washington Court where we lived the winter 1975
In 1978 we moved to Forest Road, So. Lyndeborough. We stayed there until the house fire in 1995. Willow was born there, John and Kat had hospital births- in Peterborough and Malden. The front is 4 feet shorter than when we got it. Used to be the Postoffice (before we did).
I suppose if Ilived at camp, I could also say I live at Pennsic part time (let’s see about 10 days @ for 40 years is over a year- longer than we lived at Washington Court). However varied the accomidations were.
