Our House - 6: Homemade House

This late 1800s house and family cabinet photo must have been extremely precious to someone, given how well-worn it is.

The back has an inscription that seems to have been written by a child (and in handwritting that looks feminine rather than masculine), which reads, "This was our first home Dad and Mother build it almost alone. This is where I was born. Father with Evelyn, Will on the stoll, Lucy, Mother with Anna Mary on her lap." Sadly, neither the writer nor the parents are named.
