Here is a great post by Randy over at Genea-Musings about the house he grew up in. It was built by his great-grandparents on 30th Street in San Diego, sometime before the 1900s.
Here’s an excerpt from his post:
“I grew up in the second story flat at 2119 30th Street. It had two bedrooms and a sun room on the south side (over the porch). My family moved in in 1947 after my brother was born. We initially shared the bedroom in the southeast corner. My mother did her artwork, pottery and copper enameling in the sunroom. There was only one bathroom on the east side of the flat, with a bathtub (no shower until about 1960). One of my hideouts was the cubby-hole over the entry staircase – I could watch the street and not be seen by anyone inside or outside.
