Time and Again

Returning to the recently discovered cache of pictures taken almost two decades ago, I found another that provides an opportunity to contemplate the difference that paint makes, specifically paint color. The pictures show 220, 222, 224, and 226 Union Street in 1996 or 1997 and the same four houses today. 

Of the four houses, only 224 seems not to have changed much in twenty years, except to have acquired red roofs on the bay and the little gable over the stoop and a ubiquitous satellite TV dish. The house now has a new owner, and there is renovation work going on inside, so maybe warmer weather will bring changes to the exterior as well.
