According to Snopes, at least two of the houses shown in the original collection have been digitally manipulated.

Conflicting answers here...1st we started with 3 being fake, then there were 2. Perhaps we will be down to 1 soon?

Note....I didn't take the pics, so there is no point getting knickers in a twist
