Summerville House Perhaps 1950s

This is an undated photograph of the John D. Taylor, Sr.-Jr., house in Summerville, Georgia.  It seems to come from the 1960s.  The car is a 1959 Mercury which my grandfather, John Dodson Taylor, Jr. (1905-1976), bought in 1962 or 1963.  The Volkswagen belonged to Eugene Stoddard Taylor, Jr. (1928-2012).  The context seems to be a family reunion.

This was the house into which my grandfather, John D. Taylor, Jr., entered the world in 1905.  My grandmother, Nell Barrett Taylor spent most her life there also.  My father and uncle grew up there, and my mother, sister, and I lived there for a time.

My mother’s family visited my father’s family at Summerville, Georgia, in 1969.

These images might also interest those involved in the restoration of that structure during the next few days.

My Uncle Randy recalls that the trees in front were there until the 1960s, when he was in college.  That fact provides a range of latest possible dates for the photograph.  I would not be surprised, however, if the image comes from the 1950s.

Update:  April 4, 2014–This image probably comes from the middle 1940s, based on information my Uncle Randy has shared with me.

It is interesting to look upon childhood photographs of relatives I have always known to be adults.  Often we humans lock a certain image of someone into our heads, as if that person was always that age.  In reality, however, each of us has many faces throughout life.
