Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Older than 50 Years

For this week’s Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Older than 50 Years (https://ceenphotography.com/2016/07/21/cees-black-white-photo-challenge-older-than-50-years-2/)

“This week we get to look to the past.  I only want to see photos of things that are 50 years old or older.  Old building, cars, bridges, trees, relics, rusty and crusty items are always allowed as long as I can still tell what it was. ”

This is the Old Victoria Custom House, built in 1875.  I think it qualifies!

Here is the Chinese Cemetery, which opened in 1903, and closed in the 1950s.

And this, this is our home.  Built in 1907, it became a care home in the 1950s, then a B&B in the 1980s, until around 2002 when it was shut down.  It sat “empty” (quotes used because it was full of all the furniture and assorted knick-knacks from it’s B&B days) until we bought it in 2012.  It has become a friend.

  1. What is that big building behind your house? Is it as close as it looks?

    • There is an apartment/condo building the block behind us. It’s not right behind us, but across the street on the next block. We don’t even notice it (much) any more…

  2. What a pretty house you have and such an interesting history, too. 🙂

  3. Wonderful selection of photos of things over 50 years old for this challenge.
