Would it be looking east down Indian Trail just north of Hillandale Golf Course?
This might be Acadia St., with Club Blvd. ahead and Northgate Park on the right. Ellerbe(e) creek is the culprit.
It does have the feel of Indian Trail, but Indian Trail sits well above the golf course, and I don't think would flood like this. My thought was Northgate Park too, and Acadia street looks about right on Google Maps Streetview. It certainly floods an awful lot through there.
My guess was around Hillandale or off of Club near Northgate Park.Acadia being mentioned Anon & Mike helped.Maybe this is the area?http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j189/littleredtoy_2006/mysteryphotofromSept17th2009.jpg?t=1253201672The only house with a side door on the front left that I could find is in this pic.Sethseth@realtor.com
I also believe that it is the Acadia/Club Blvd. address previously mentioned. That is the Bird Sanctuary to the right. The Ellerbee Creek flooding is the marker, not the houses! We looked forward to playing in the floods in the '60's-'70's. I wonder if this is a Durham-Sun paper photograph by Tony Rumple or Jim Thornton. Both lived in the area at the time.
I believe the house with the side door is 2416 Acadia and the neighboring house with the covered front porch is 2414. You can see them both on the Durham County web site. http://www.co.durham.nc.us/departments/txad/Tax_Record_Searches.html
Yes, the house with the side entrance is 2416. Notice the different heights of the lower sills of the two windows to left of the front door (as seen through the tree branches in the mystery photo).
