French Manor House

Title

French Manor House

Description

Sepia-toned image of a three-story European Manor home that appears to be in a rural combination of Romanesque and Beaux Arts architecture. The mansard roof features a guardrail along the roofline, and three dormers with rounded tops lie along the steeply sloped roof. Shutters grace most of the windows, and a small shed takes up the foreground of the image in front of the house. A man in a uniform with shoulder boards and a campaign hat stands in front of the shed, while men can be seen standing inside the smaller building and inside the open window at the left end of the house. The sign on the shed itself cannot be made out. Mary Morrissey Wunderlich, born in Washington County in the late 1880s, served in Europe as a nurse during World War I and is credited with taking this image. See WCMpic_015286 for what appears to be a front view of this house, and WCMpic_015288 and WCmpic_015299 for other images credited to Mary Morrissey Wunderlich.
