Description

Hand-colored lantern slide featuring a photo of the George Reid House, formerly known as Captain Orr's Dwelling, taken by F.S. Lincoln in 1935. It is the fifteenth slide in a set produced by the Pacific Stereopticon Co. of Los Angeles, California, now defunct, to illustrate the story of Dr. W.A.R. Goodwin's dream to restore a portion of Williamsburg, Virginia to its 18th-century appearance as a shrine to early American ideals.

This view is looking from the William Lightfoot Kitchen towards the west side of the George Reid House on Duke of Gloucester Street. Built around 1790, it served as a residence for a merchant who owned a shop further up the street. It is an example of a typical colonial house with one and a half stories and a central passage.
