Summary:The Old Vedder House on the Bay, St. Augustine, Florida, circa 1907-1914. Caption reads: "Built for Royal Spanish Officials. The double wall at the base was to protect it from the sea. The only house in the city with a double base, proving beyond doubt that it was built years previous to the old Spanish sea wall.
