Via Gellia, Bonsall

Sue Pepin emailed this photo and says:

Hi John,
    This is the photo of the Via Gellia. I have been told by 
Walter Wildgoose's grandson that this was a picture of the 
family home.  Walter Wildgoose was the son of 
George Wildgoose and Jane Davis. He was born 1850 and married 
Elizabeth Gregory. Walter and Elizabeth had 11 children that 
I know of. Walter was the brother of my grt. grandfather George.
I do thankfully have a picture of George and his wife 
Harriett Elliott so that is nice. 
I see in the picture what looks to be power lines or a line 
of poles along the road side anyway. I don't know what that 
tells you unless you have some idea of when the poles or power 
was installed on Via Gellia.
Best Wishes
