Washed bandages being put up on the line to be dried...
1860s Medicine cabinet
Laundresses would often wear wooden clogs since leather shoes couldn't handle getting wet so often. So yes, I clip-clopped around in them lol! It was an uncomfortable experience, but actually I got used to them :) ...heh, somewhat.
Inside, a young woman writes a letter to loved ones, as others pass by.
During this event, not only can I share facts and interact with the public, but gleaning wisdom from the older generation is always a blessing. As I washed the clothes, older couples would stand around, reminiscing to when they used to do these very things "back in the olden days".
I find that although they praised convenience, many still acknowledged that "things were simpler back then" and many of these skills just aren't a priority anymore.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on this,
and hope you all are having a pleasant weekend!
