So this very american website, with vintage ecards, has a card that futures my house!! :bounce: What are the odds of finding a picture of your own home on a ecard site.

The trees on the dockside are bigger, and the yellowish building in the middle has been replaced by a new appartment block, but it's pretty much the same street since the picture was taken, around 1910.
