Learning To See

I’m poking around ebay a lot these days. This time in search of candid photographs that are initially intriguing. Later I like to examine them more carefully and ask myself – Why did I save this particular image? What was it that caught my eye? All this in an effort to see better.

American 4 Square

The American Foursquare was part of the vernacular architecture in the United States.  This house consisted of four rooms on the first floor, four rooms on the second and dormers in the attic…all contained in a box or square shape. I thought the title was appropriate for my collection of images c. 1890-1940 since they coincide with the years of the Foursquare’s popularity.
