Then and Now

My new neighborhood in 1955 and today. I love that most of the old business buildings still remain, as well as my apartment (which is over 100 yrs old!)

Yesterday the USS Lindock shipped out of Green Bay and docked in Madison! Here are a few pics of the new-old (built pre-1920), empty and bright apartment. Almost everything is unpacked now so more pictures to come.
The pictures:
-Living room with door to the sun-porch
-Bedroom with lovely refinished hardwood floor
-Small work room off the living room that measures about 5'x6'...large enough for my table and a shelf.  
-I love having a window in the kitchen and bath, something I have never had in an apartment before!
