Two Old Photographs of the Tavern

For a bit, I thought these were the same photo, but I was wrong. They are probably separated by one or two decades.

The photo below is shows the house in very good condition. The bench in the left side of the property still sits on the porch today.

White Horse Tavern Front circa 1886 (scanned my personal copy of Wayside Inns on the Lancaster Road) taken by Julius F. Sachse. The picture is used twice in the book, once on the plate between pages 80 and 81 (where the photographer is credited), and again on the plate between pages 184 and 185.

In the “Powers” photo below, there may be a structure on the East side of the building, near where the ice house is.

Taken by Fred Perry Powers and used in a talk he gave in 1912. But the photo is only referenced as a private photo taken by him, no date given.
