day 190 – four pieces of history

they tore down the house next to our place last summer so i went to scavenge the remains of the open walls and floors. i found this beautiful piece of old floor and this disturbingly old remnant of a 1930’s newspaper.

last week, i found this decorative box i had forgotten about. it’s a printed metal box to commemorate the silver jubilee (1910-1935) and inside, safely kept with some other treasures and jewelry, i discovered my mom’s baby identification bracelet from 1955.
