For a change I'm posting a few photos I took this evening in the Summerside area.
This barn is near the main intersection at Miscouche - a great large barn.
The gambrel roof features two large dormers and three roof vents.
Further down the road is Linkletter Beach - here are two mid 20th-century cottages. I've always been interested in the styles of these little P.E.I. cottages and would like to research and document them further someday.
A bit further up the road in St. Eleanors is the former Isaac Jeffery/ George A. Jeffery /Effie Jeffery Homestead. This was the original site of the first Jeffery settlement on P.E.I. in 1810 - the farm consisted of 604 acres running down to the shore and today mostly occupied by the Summerside Golf Course. This house was built about 1865 and replaced the original house "a cottage covered with roses" - the present house was built by Isaac Jeffery (son of George Jeffery, immigrant from the Isle of Wight) and his wife Louisa McInnis.
In 1983 Effie and her sister Kathleen showed me through this old house then let me drive their 1955 Chevy up to St. John's Anglican Church cemetery to show me where our relatives were buried. Kathleen died in Florida later that year and Effie died in 1987. An estate auction of all the contents of this property was held in August 1987 - a year later the house was sold out of the family.
The property had many silver maple trees and during my 1983 visit I was given a seedling to take home with me.
Note the gingerbread running trim on the gable dormer. The gabled window and square bay windows have much detailing The new owners have done a great job retaining the original character of the house.
This beautiful detailed Island-ell Style farmhouse is located on the south side of the Murray River overlooking the river.
This nicely kept house has the following features - wrap-around verandah with gingerbread and running trim; bay window, cedar shingle siding; upper gable decorative cut shingles; a single dormer with pediment roof; eave returns; frieze board; 2-over-2 windows; and traditional style screened door.
The upper gable features decorative-cut cedar shingles with diamond and square cut patterns.
