Remember this post from a few weeks ago?

In search of Cephas Love Wilson's house, on Jefferson Street, in Marianna, Florida.

Well, I’ve found a partial photo of that house! Take a look:

In the background is the front porch of the Cephas Love Wilson house, complete with Doric column, shutters on the windows, and wooden swing!

It’s accurate, too, if you recall the graphic of the house from the Sanborn Fire Insurance Map of Marianna.

Notice the porch on the front of the house. Ira and his son, Ira Jr., are posed at the lower right hand of this diagram.

Isn’t that great detail? I’m so thrilled!

Of course, I’d love to have more photos and detailed information about this house, as it does figure prominently in the first few years of Emmett’s career, but I’m thrilled with this most recent find!
