Come back for my next blog to see more from Gordon Van Tine! And no, I don’t just identify Gordon Van Tine…I’m just polishing my GVT identification skills and knowledge right now. I’ll be honest. I do love Gordon Van Tine though!
Also coming soon, a Gordon Van Tine house, barn and poultry house with documention, order forms, correspondence letters, vintage photos, construction photos too! I’m gathering images and info now.
I have several awesome homes to share from blog readers, a Sears 119 in Iowa comes to mind, a Lewis Vitello that Mark Hardin found, a Henry Wilson bungalow in Nova Scotia that I identified for a reader.
