An Unveiling on Upper Columbia Street

No doubt there were compelling reasons why people, over the decades, covered their clapboard houses with various kind of siding, probably chief among them being not having to paint. But when that later siding is removed to reveal the wood clapboard and the detailing that was part of a house's original design, it is always cause for celebration. This week the removal of siding began at 819 Columbia Street. A reader provided Gossips with these pictures.
