78 Deer Hill Avenue
There are many grand old homes on Deer Hill, but I'm a sucker for Victorians, though I could never afford the upkeep. This one is my favorite. I can imagine a time when people would sit out on this porch on a summer evening and wave to their neighbors as they promenade up and down the street.
Nowadays most homes don't have porches, and most streets don't have sidewalks. I can't help but think that we lost something priceless when we moved from a neighborhood-centered culture to a car culture.
