McNeely, S. Blake
This black and white photograph features a two story house on decorative pilings. A semicircular set of stairs leads to the front porch, columns are spaced along the porch, and three dormers line the roof. A chimeny is on either side of the roof. Trees and shrubs surround the house. A typed label on the back of the photograph identifies the house as "Longfellow House" at Pascagoula, Mississippi and claims that the house inspired the poem "Building of the Ship."
