Friday's Photo: Inside the House

Wouldn't you like to know more about your ancestor's home? I have several pictures of my ancestor's homes from the outside, but only one, my grandmother's Giddens family, purposefully took pictures of the inside of their home. 

These pictures show the inside of the Giddens' home in Phillipsburg, New Jersey. My grandmother's father, Charles A. Giddens, owned a men's furnishings store at 310 South Main Street and the family lived above the store. In the album these are labeled "Den 1919."

The oval picture on the wall and the pictures on the desk are photographs of people. Wouldn't you like to see them?!

Note that Charles W. Giddens picture is above the couch. 

Music was Hindustan and Blue Bird. The third looks as if to be a military or war song, but I cannot read the cover. I wonder who played the piano. 

College Pennants must have been popular. I don't know if any of this
family attended college.
