House in Putney Completed
Travelin' Gal's stone-and stucco house has been completed! The view below shows the roof tiles being applied, and some of the windows are ready to install. Like all new Island houses, this one was custom-built with all indigenous materials. The tiles are of local clay, and the windows were made by the Samover Window Tribe in Portmore.
The view beyond is of Putney Bay to the west.
The completed house, below, as seen from the street corner. The lady with the baby buggy is very interested in what goes on in this house - the neighbors have been talking and something might appear in the The Putney Tattler, a local scandal/gossip sheet.
Putney has been restoring its elegant Russian streetlamps, imported in 1914 from St. Petersburg.
