Early 20th Century Photo of Mansion with American Flag - Ambassador's Residence?
This is an early 20th century photo of a mansion, with an American flag flying above it. In the lower right corner there is a dog (looks suspiciously like a collie, but who knows), and there are trees and shrubbery around it.
Someone contacted me awhile back and had some good info about this building, but I have unfortunately lost it. The gist of it was that this was the old residence of the American Ambassador to Great Britain.
I can't date this precisely, but based on the mounting and type of photo (I believe it is gelatin silver), this is probably WWI era, give or take.
