The Wallace Nutting photo PC039 of a house in Plymouth Mass depicts the Harlow Old Fort House at 119 Sandwich Street in Plymouth, before the large central chimney was replaced with a narrower stack about 1906. I have a postcard postmarked 1906 that shows the Harlow House with the narrow stack.

thanks! #
