    Here it is.....The second installment of my neighborhood.
    This is 310, the house next to mine. It too was modified in the last 100 years. Mostly as mine, a wrap around porch was added.

    Construction was the same. Started with a City Classics Company house. The only difference is the front porch has ornate wrought iron posts. I couldn't find anything close in brass, and when I tried to scratch build them, they were to bulky and big, so I substituted them with regular poles.

    And a little History............

    Heres a picture of my neighborhood as it looked in 1907.
    This is from a hand drawn map of Torrington Ct.
    My house is on the right, next to the mill. Now an insurance company occupies the spot, in a more modern building, the foundation from the mill is still there.

    Looking good 88! There's something so cool about exact prototype modeling! I really like the old pic from the map too!
