6 Washington Avenue, Provincetown (2008), by David W. Dunlap.In its first 150 years of existence, this substantial house was owned by only two families: the Morris-Snow family until 1947, and the Vasques family from then untl 2004. Happily for posterity, the Snow family included a photographer, Louis, who thought to take pictures of the inside of family’s home around 1900, creating an especially priceless glimpse into the domestic life of the mercantile class. (One word: wallpaper!) Three views of the house were reproduced by Irma Ruckstuhl in the wonderfully revealing Old Provincetown in Early Photographs, followed by three photographs of the Obadiah Snow & Son store at 259-263 Commercial Street.
