The 1850's

Moving along the road, I ran right into the 1850's!  The house was bigger and better constructed.

Life had begun to settle down.  The gentleman below was beginning to gather his musket for a little hunting.   I found it fascinating that a musket, with powder and ball were always near by.  Life was.....unpredictable back then. 

And, the lady of the house was busy working, cooking and cleaning.

No washing machines.  No dryers except a rope between two trees.   People then were strong, smart and self reliant.  If you weren't, you didn't survive long.
