The house in the foreground, which had obviously sufered the collapse and removal of its entry porch, caught my interest in December 1998. It has since been demolished. Watch what happens to its two neighbors, which we'll dub the bay window house and the twin-dormer house:

Above: Two photographs, taken at different times but coincidentally from almost exactly the same spot. On the left, a March 2001 shot of the bay window house seen at top. On the right, an October 2002 view of the twin-dormer house after it suffered a major fire; it was still standing as of January 2003.

Right: The bay window house, shrouded in a cloak of vegetation, October 2002.
