Just a few favorite photographs found in Charles A. Fracchia and Jeremiah O. Bragstad's amazing book from 1977, Converted Into Houses.
The homes from the rooms shot here all served much different non-residential purposes in their past lives, including a cigar factory, an Armorer's workshop, a cannery, a lumberyard, a ferry boat, a barn and a church, just to name a few. I wonder if any smells from the former cigar factory still lingered around the walls? And how amazing would it be to have a drawing space set up in one of them??
