I have a bad cold..not up to par today, so I'll keep this quick. When we first purchased the house, and saw the poster of "American Gothic" on the wall, I knew the house was ours..and meant to be. Now after removing a ceiling in the old "Breakfast nook" look what was on the ceiling....
Now, need I say more? Since it's my last name!! Although I have never been to Canton Ohio...I'll just take the name reference as a sign. The next pic, shows what was on the ceiling above the parlor..I didn't quite understand where it was found, just when they removed the tin, it was there...and somewhere, (not on camera) I was told that there was a reference to being a tin manufacturer. They used the crate and all!
This photo shows pieces of a crate used as wood firring strips!
The demo is coming nicely, the kitchen is the last room to go, and it's half down...gee, I spoke too much catch up next time!
