Givens Castle

Here is a shot of the Givens Castle that was taken around 1955.  It shows the side 'portico' porch that existed until around the early 70's.  

As you may or may not know, this was my home... at least the top two floors were from 1951 until 1965 when we moved to Oaklawn. It's a long story how we ended up in that magnificent place, a life changer for sure. Anyway, this is kind of a rare shot from 103rd. St.

BTW:  the 1889 photo on the blog shows the little limestone bridge, path, and fountain that was still in place in the 50's between the Castle and Barb Cuttle Wilcox house next door to the north on Longwood.
