Horses

1908 San Francisco had a disposable society, but unlike today's planned obsolescent disposable consumer goods, men and horses were used up and discarded

Moving a big, very heavy house, built of much heavier timbers and lumber, on SF's hills, was a monumental task. Men jacking the house with hand operated screw jacks, and cribbing... no mamby pamby computer controlled, self leveling hydraulics. Then just two horses turning winches to move it forward. The horses probably had to carry the gear to the site, also. :dedhorse:

Wow. Cool pic. People and horses getting it done. <insert old man philosophizing here>

Nice!

And it's just squeezing by the wires.

At first I though they'd copied a two page picture out of a book, but it stops at the eve and the picture on either side isn't distorted.
Then at the eve there's a jog so I figured it was a shadow of the jog down the side, but why would it extend into the street?
Then I decided it's 3foots fault and he screwed up when he was a photo lab trainee.

Does someone know where this house is today?

xoxoxoBruce 07-12-2015 09:40 AM

Not a clue, not even if it still exists.

Nuzzling up together on the frosty ground in the Falkland Islands, this might seem like the most unlikely of friendships. But this herd of horses took in a lonely penguin as one of their own and snuggled up with their curious new companion.

They were also seen playfully chasing after the bird as it stretched out its wings and waddled along the white-topped turf. The horses also craned their necks and touched their noses with the penguin's beak in the heart-warming snaps.

Yo dawg, I heard you like to ride a horse when you ride a horse, so I painted a horse on your horse...
