Not So Wordless Wednesday- Mending Stockings

In 2008 I was a delegate to the Mayflower Congress in Plymouth, Massachusetts and my husband came along and spent the days wandering museums, beaches and the historic sites nearby.  In getting ready for the 2011 Congress, I found his files of photographs from 2008.  He took hundreds of great photos of Plimoth Plantation, and this one has been on my Facebook photo album for almost three years.  The re-enactor here, Justin Squizzero, found it and used it on his own Facebook page (he's been a re-enactor at Plymouth, Old Sturbridge Village and the Coggeshall Farm Museum and probably other places).  Here he is as a pilgrim, mending a stocking. You can catch a glimpse of a 20th century person in the doorway to the left.

I hope to post more of these photographs soon!

  1. We just spent a day at Plimoth Planation and I have to say that it was slightly creepy having a conversation with my 11th great grandfather!
