It looks a fine place to relax and watch the passers-by.

It makes me want to sit down with a good book. It seems quiet ... or is it the work of the photographer ?

I think one of the failings of most modern homes is the lack of big, comfy porches. This is sooo nice!

Poor Dr. Bethune didn't live very long, did he? Wonder how he died?

Jacob,
Dr. Bethune died in China when the Japanese were invading that country. He accidentally cut his finger with a scalpel and died of infection.

Tis is a porch of old, the place to get out of the sun and relax. Or you could think and/or imagine an invention that will help mankind. A porch is just the place...

I learned about Bethune in China in the '80s... His name was ALWAYS mentioned as soon as someone heard I was Canadian. He was made a hero by the communists. I wonder if the younger generation know of him as much. You could sell this cool sepia to collectors...
