The “Three Bricks” were built by Joseph Starbuck for his three sons between 1837 and 1840. If you take a stroll down Main Street. Some of the most elegant historic homes will be found on Main and Orange Streets where the wealthy sea captains, ship owners and merchants lived. Many of these homes feature widows walks with panoramic views of the harbor and horizon beyond. Although most homes were built of wood, many brick mansions were built during Nantucket’s golden era. Perhaps the most famous are the three located side-by-side at 93, 95 and Main Street. The “Three Bricks” were built by wealthy Sea Captain Joseph Starbuck for his three sons between 1837 and 1840.
A photo of a Private Home in Gothenburg, Göteborg County, Västra Götaland County Sweden in September 1923. The Photographer, Jeanette (Jessie) Hunter Choate, sent it to her sister, Susan Parker Choate Stebbins with an enclosed note saying that it reminded her exactly of the architecture of a house in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Susan was 2nd wife to Historical Maritime Photographer, Nathaniel Livermore Stebbins, and the family had several "photography friends" including noted Children's Photographer and Children's Advertising Photography Pioneer, Bertha Lothrop.

Do any of the buildings look familiar to anyone ? IAbout 1950 my grandparents Michael and Anna Izzo and my Uncle John Izzo a US veteran, returned to Naples, Italy to sign over title to the family wrecked " palace " ( top left building I think ) , to his cousins in Italy. My grandpa and others said he was a prince because of his grandmother somehow. His father, Louis ( Luigo ) Izzo arrived in America about 1984 and my grandpa and his mom Frances arrived about 1903 after his brother and sister died of pneumonia.My grandpa also alomost died of that pneumonia but ask to have a lot of pepper , garlic and wine to fight the pneumonia and after a few days it worked. He didn't know about antibiotics then, but piperine in pepper , allicin in fresh garlic and the sulphur in wine barrels are antibiotics. )

This is the day the Arch was done, my mom & dad took me to the event to watch them put the last piece in place
I believe this is the view from the back of the Scheffler home on Jasper Street.This is one of a series of photographs in an album that I inherited from my great-aunt, Edna Lucille Fuller Johnson (1903 - 1988.) I believe the photos were taken by her father, Frederick L. Fuller (1871 – c.1915.) As Mr. Fuller died when she was still a child, I have very few clues to his life. Most of the photos are of rivers in New Jersey and other states. I think his interest in rivers related to hydro-electric plants that he may have helped to establish. There are also family photos that probably record the members of his grandfather's household prior to 1903. The Scheffler family lived on Jasper Street, Paterson, New Jersey. Unfortunately, unlike the river photos, there are no names recorded in the album for family members. Fred Fuller can only be found on two federal census reports. The first listing is on the 1880 census of Paterson, Passaic, New Jersey, where he is a nine year old living with his grandfather, Theodore Scheffler. The second listing is on the census of 1900 for Frederick and his wife Nana or Nannie Blackley (1879 - 1838.) In that year, he is listed as an electrician, living in Essex, East Orange, New Jersey. According to family lore, Fred met his future wife, Nana Blackley, when he went to Franklin, North Carolina to set up an electric plant.
