My mother liked to drive up and down streets in the evening…looking in windows and seeing families having dinner, relaxing, reading the paper. Some walked their dogs, chatted, strolled up and down. One of her particular inspirations was South Main Street in Wallingford, Connecticut. It was easy to imagine turn-of the century people doing all these things in their own neighborhood…and that’s what led to Porches!
