Squint Shot 021512

Yesterday's squint shot showed nearly the full window -- one of the front windows of the house at 701 East Grand River -- and today's is a close-up of the painted trim. This house was moved in the 1920s from its original location a few blocks east to its current location. I have to wonder if any of this trim had to be reinstalled after the house was rolled down the street on large logs.

I tried looking online for a picture of a house being moved on logs around this era in the early 1900s. I didn't have any luck but I did find this intriguing picture of large wheels that were created in 1922-23 and used for moving large buildings and houses of all sizes.
