Living quarters


We were told that in the old days, the family that owned the mill would have actually lived onsite. This is an approximation of what their quarters might have looked like. Mom and Dad would probably sleep in the bed and there would have been another mattress underneath that could be pulled out for the children to share. I'm still glad I live in modern times!

The tone of the photo makes it look a bit bleak. I guess that there could be worse things, tho, than living in that era...like living in Somalia right now.

j'aime bien les vieux lits et les vieux sommiers, dans le lot nous avons encore des matelas de l'epoque de mon grand-pere et on dors vraiment tres bien dedans

Whew! At first I thought this was the master suite of the new house you bought in Toronto! :-)

I prefer modern, too!

Pendant un court instant, j'ai cru que c'était ta nouvelle maison !!!!

Moi je ne sais pas trop, je me dis que si la vie était plus dure, elle était aussi plus simple, on se faisait peut-être moins de noeuds au cerveau... Mais je rêve peut-être...

Yes, we are spoiled today, and I prefer it.

Mystic Pizza was two blocks to the left. I had so many useful shots that day, it was hard to decide what to show.

I agree! What a contrast with your yesterday picture...

I like that we are spoiled today, but i do also like to look at these quarters from years ago. The woodwork is just fabulous.

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
