WINTER PORCH POSING. This young couple appears ready to step out on a wintry day. Presumably they found their way back home, despite the fact their address had lost one digit. That address could match numerous houses in Lincoln and the location has not been identified. The full-height Tuscan porch column and the cut shingles decorating the upper wall indicate a house that was built at the dawn of the 20th century.
The woman is thought to be Lucile Miller.
