July 1909 photograph of "Bide-A-Wee", the home of Mrs. Robert H. Barnes of 24 Van Buren Street, Brooklyn, New York. The photograph was intended to be given to Miss Hannah Cole.
Bide-A-Wee might have been the Barnes' summer cottage, not their residence at 24 Van Buren Street in Brooklyn.
In the 1910 Census, living at 24 Van Buren Street, Brooklyn, New York, were coal and wood salesman Robert H. Barnes, born about 1870 in New York, and his wife Minnie.
From brief online research, hopefully correct - corrections and additions requested:
Robert Henry Barnes (1870-1920) was the son Henry Edgerton Barnes and Mary Annette (Hogoboom) Barnes. On 25 October 1899 in New York City, Robert married Wilhelmina Josephine Wagner, "Minnie".
If you have information on the Barnes family or know of "Bide-A-Wee, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
