[The George Ranch house from an east approach]

Description:

Photograph of the George Ranch house, east approach. The two story white wooden house has three of the four chimneys visible. The two open porches on have white railing. There is a rocking chair on the bottom porch. Two oak trees partially obscure view of the front of house. The cistern house, to the left of the main house, is not painted and has no weather vane on top during this period. The top of a windmill is seen between the cistern house and the main house. A white picket fence is in front of the house and a wire fence for foul encloses the picket fence. Inside of the wire fence on right and to the left of the wooden gate are several wooden boxes (coops ?). There is no driveway leading to front. Stamped on back of photo in black: "316".
