Photo 1: The Truman House, 1904.[Photo 1] with link to larger version of photo.

Photo 2: The Truman House today.[Photo 2] with link to larger version of photo.

Questions for Photos 1 and 2

1. Compare the two photos. What has changed and what has remained the same?

2. How would you describe the house?

3. Who lived in this house when Photo 1 was taken? (You may need to refer back to the readings and Map 2 key.) Why might the Trumans have moved into the Wallace house upon their marriage?

* The photos on this screen have a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), and therefore will print poorly. You can obtain a larger version of Photo 1 and Photo 2, but be aware that each file will take as much as 35 seconds to load with a 28.8K modem.
