E.B. White writing CHARLOTTE'S WEB - We Were There (Location, not Time)

A former student, interested in the concepts of living and working in small spaces, posted on FB a pic. of E.B. White writing CHARLOTTE'S WEB in the little boathouse, overlooking the cove on the coast of Maine.  This is where he wrote the entire book - just him and his typewriter in the little building.  There's not much more to it than is shown in this picture.

And here we are in the same little building some 60 years later, on our trip to Maine two summers ago.  It was a big treat to get to sit in the same place - and now is special to compare it to the picture above, which I hadn't seen until Sunday.
