A Trellis of Roses

From the John Holly Williams Collection, LLF Library
"A house with a rose growing up the front and across the house is seen with four people. The woman in front of the door wears a longer style dress." -- Library caption.

The man in the proper hat on the right appears to be holding a cane and his coat tails seem longer than ordinary.  The ladies' long dresses implyVictorian times, as does the architecture of the home -- note the distinctive porch rail and the "Italianate" window.  

I have cross checked the architectural features of the home against picture postcards of known Queen Anne homes in the town and have come up empty.  

As always, if someone recognizes the people or the home, please leave word here or on my Facebook page.
