Fairbanks history–going, going, gone? What’s different about these photos?
I love back yards. They show so much about the true character of the house’s residents.
Both of these photos show the back yard of the house at 303 Illinois Street, here is Fairbanks. The house was built in 1930 by the Fairbanks Exploration Company for one of its managers. Sitting in the back yard is a 1940s era Army bus.
I took the photo on the top about 15 years ago. The one on the bottom was taken last week. The more recent photo is missing an important historic structure. Can you spot it? It’s the Fairbanks coal bunkers that I posted about recently.
