I love to see old photos of my house so I would be thrilled to get photos like the OP is suggesting. My house was built in the twenties and I have had the granddaughter of the original owner tour the house. It was very interesting to hear her description of how the house looked when her grandparents lived here.

Either way, I hope you enjoy living there as much as we did (that is, until Uncle Ardvark herded the rest of the family into the upstairs bedroom (the one I assume you sleep in), and murdered them all with a dull pick-ax, leaving us orphans and wards of the State.) No fears, we turned out fine, despite being shuffled from one foster family to the next, and Uncle Aardvark died in prison this past year. It's all behind us now.

Too funny! I'd be more devious though, and warn them to be on the lookout for Uncle Aardvark since he escaped from prison last week and has vowed to finish what he started and to not be taken alive.
I heard the call to do nothing. So I answered it.
