Comment: This is the earliest of the pictures which show what was to become the Rossmore. There is no protective porch over the front door, and the tree is much smaller than the next picture, which was likely taken not long before the house underwent major modifications

Comment: This picture is a little later than the picture above. A small porch has been added over the front door, and the tree in the front yard has grown.

I suspect it was taken shortly before the house under went it's major modification in about 1912.
