a real find...

After the first wall came down, I noticed some newspapers stuffed into some of the cinder blocks. I grabbed as much as I could see. Luckily, some were still whole, while others were torn in half before they stuffed them in the walls.

Anyway, I think it's a really good indication as to around when they built the first garage. All the newspapers are from either June 8 or June 9, 1952! Older than my oldest siblings!! Just over a year after my parents were married. Pretty cool.

This means that the garage was built during the time that Ed and Mae Nordman lived in the house as opposed to when Byron and Betty Scott lived in the house.

I'm in the process of ironing them all out. I've already cleaned all the spider webs and wasp nests out of them.
