Napa Photos From Ireland
The following photos came all the way from Ireland. That may seem strange since they are of Napa, California. The best guess that I have is that the top photo was taken in the 1880s and is of the Stanly Ranch in Napa. This is all probable given the fact that Michael Flanagan worked for Stanly. The stands of eucalyptus trees kind of give it away.
The second photo is of the Flanagan Ranch House in the Carneros Region of Napa, California. I am guessing this photo is from after 1900 since the house does not look new in this photo given the vines growing on the front of the house. Photos are so interesting, especially when you know the location pictured.
