Friday Photos: Simon Lauck House and Extras

The Simon Lauck House, 311 S. Loudoun

PHW has added over 150 photos to Flickr, with the largest individual album being the Simon Lauck House, PHW’s first Revolving Fund property. Our original post when we shared these photos on Picasa can be found here. To quote from that post:

The plan at the time was to restore the building’s exterior to its appearance circa 1790 as a proof to Winchester that many of the “Victorian” houses in the Potato Hill area in fact contained a much older log nucleus. To achieve this, a substantial portion of the house was removed, reducing it from a duplex to a single residence and stripping most of the exterior away. PHW volunteers did a great deal of the hands-on work at the Simon Lauck house, as documented by Virginia Miller.

We have also been double checking (or finding unscanned photos still tucked in boxes) for some of the streets we previously thought were complete. This includes:

51 1976 Architectural Survey photos for West Boscawen Street
9 photos on Fairmont Avenue
27 photos from Braddock Street
As well as adding the existing 1976 photos of West Cork Street to the 1976 Survey album

All of the new photos can be found at the front of the Flickr photostream, or at the end of their respective albums. Happy viewing!
