Post photos of your American Foursquare

I purchased a 1903 American Foursquare in Louisville, KY in the fall of 2008.
After scouring the web for information, I have come up short. Mostly, all I have found are posts on message boards/forums stating someone is looking for information but can't find any.
Here are the best web-sites I've found so far:
http://www.oldhouseweb.com/architecture-and-design/american-foursquare-1890-1930.shtml
http://www.realtor.org/rmohome_and_design/architecturecoach/pastarticles/arch20040628
http://architecture.about.com/library/bl-foursquarephotos.htm
While these few pages are helpful, they tend to provide the same information.
There are several books on Victorian houses and Craftsman houses, but virtually none on this very popular (if plebian) style. Architectural books rarely devote more than a paragraph to the style.

So, I am starting this thread to bring together Foursquare home owners to show off their homes and share information.

Here are some pictures of my "new" foursquare. I look forward to seeing yours!

Mine was built in 1918. Great shape too, were finishing up renovations on the bathroom & kitchen

This is what I believe is an American Foursquare. It is one that my husband and I would like to move and renovate, but haven't got the ok yet. I have been trying to identify the maker- according to the owner it is a 1917 Sears or Montgomery Ward home, built by his father, but I haven't figured out the model or manufacturer for sure yet.
