[PHOTO] Fifteen photos of the interior of Green Gables House, Cavendish, PEI

The centrepiece of Cavendish’s Green Gables Heritage Place is, of course, Green Gables House itself. Owned by the MacNeills, cousins of the young Lucy Maud Montgomery, this house inspired the setting of Anne of Green Gables. The interior is that of a well-appointed prosperous farmhouse from the late 19th century, narrow stairwells and beds for the hired help and all.

Green Gables House circa 1966 #pei #princeedwardisland #cavendish #greengableshouse #greengables #toronto #ryersonimagecentre #nytimes #thefarawaynearby

Yesterday, I linked to a National Observer report about an exciting new exhibit at the Ryerson Image Centre, of a cache of old New York Times photos acquired by that museum of photography and put on exhibit. The Faraway Nearby is indeed a good exhibit–I stopped by last night. My attention was caught particularly by a photograph taken of Green Gables House in 1966, long before the house had acquired its accretion of ersatz farm buildings and vast parking lots. The contrast with some of the photos I have been sharing–in particular, with yesterday’s photo post–is enlightening.
