    I have an old enlarged photo of the Ebbitt House from around 1860 prior to the roof renovation. It is a large print in wooden frame (60″X40″). Is there another history buff that would be interested in the piece? I have acquired it from my brother’s estate but sadly have no place to display the print. The frame and backing are from the turn of the 20th century. [email protected]
