Memphis V--1800s

Old china

Loom, spindle, spinning wheel, and some of their byproducts. I really want a loom.

Victorian sitting room. Please note the abundance of dead animals.


Tools! Cody kept looking at them and saying, "My dad had that one. My dad had that one. My..." I was beginning to wonder if his dad was born in the post-war baby boom for the Civil War until I remembered that Cody's very old grandpa had been a carpenter.

Widow clothes. Veils are scary.

The canon was about 3 feet away from the display case with all the china. Even though I'm sure it's not loaded and those guys aren't real and there's no canon balls in sight, it still made me nervous.
