A walk to Capitol Hill

Last night we went on a walk to Aunt Pauline's house. After more than fifty years, Joannamauselina's Aunt Pauline moved out of her Capitol Hill house and into a small apartment.

The house is enormous but probably didn't feel that enormous when there were two adults and six children living in it. The ground floor has a multitude of beautiful sitting rooms... Not pictured: actual inglenook fireplace.

The electric lady near the stairs is called "Printemps."

Original fresco decorations in one of the rooms:

We really hope someone buys it who wants to keep it almost exactly the way it is now.
