Shinn House
1251 Peralta Blvd., Fremont, CA.

The docents were beautiful dressed in Edwardian tea gowns. One of the ladies brought her granddaughter who wore a charming  Edwardian dress. Our tour of Shinn House was fascinating. The abundance of furniture and decorative items sparked many lively conservations. Our picnic was set up in the shade of the huge Oak trees. The day way warm; the adults preferred to relax in the shade while the children played croquet on the lawn in front of the house. It was a very Edwardian afternoon with the laughter of the children interspersed with conversation, a game of checkers, viewing stereoscope cards and a few readings.
