Patriotic House On West Avenue

This house is on West Avenue, between James Street and Williams Street, in the small town of Medina, New York. The big American flag hanging from the porch is kept lighted at night by floodlamps.

Interestingly, the flag has only 48 stars. The current American flag has 50 stars; the 48 star flag was discontinued in 1959 when Alaska and Hawaii became the 49th and 50th states. The flag has always had one star for each state, so new stars are added whenever a new territory is granted statehood.

I wonder why they're using a flag that has not been the official American flag more than 60 years? The flag on the house is not old, it looks to be of recent manufacture!

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
