Stairs to Where?

Posted by

This was taken in the blacksmith shop which is located near the grist mill. Here they made the metal strips that hold barrels together for storage of the flour plus horseshoes and other things. I am not sure what was upstairs. There was also a large bellows to stoke the fire.

I love the way you framed the stairway. With all of the interesting items at this level, I'm curious to know what might be upstairs. I had to go back and catch up on your previous post, but I like this series.

Cool shot, but it makes me think of one of those horror movies that happens in the South, usually involving chain saws and teenagers...but hey that is just me! I love this photo!

@Fraucha: I agree! They wouldn't let you go upstairs, so who knows?
