Nothing much has changed, as it shouldn't. The Machinist and I enjoyed our time there and had a good chat with a lady who was making butter.
|Communication back then....
|Post Office display
|An old "copper"
|Laundering utensils displayed on the back deck
|The tea table (and everything else)
|Frock and apron
|I always wonder about the display dressers of old. Did the homemaker have regular-use
dishes and plates, or did she wash and dry after each use, returning them for display?
|Cosy in winter. Extremely hot in summer.
|Where's the family?
|A sideboard for the "pretties"
|Another dresser for the lesser used items.
|The parents bedroom. See the ghost in the picture glass reflection?
|Lots of sewing and darning to be done.
|A Child's pram. I wonder if mama had her special set of straps to keep the child in.
|Recreation and entertainment
|Boots and shoes. Such personal items. See how they've been shaped to each
|Inside the hut. Brrrr.... feel the winter breeze? And in the summer? Oh my - what could
creep in? Answer: Snakes!
