This is a peek into some of the houses at the Heritage Square Museum I showed from the outside in the last post.
A cosy corner.
William Morris wallpaper, frieze and ceiling treatment; no proper Victorian house would have been complete without these imports from England.
A chandelier with colorful detail work.
This lamp might look a bit utilitarian in comparison, but it is interesting insofar as that it is a dual-power lamp – it is rigged for use with gas and electricity.
Not all of the houses have yet been finished inside. Most of the structures are still in the process of being restored. This invariably involves stripping the plaster, wallpaper and paint of decades to arrive at the original walls
Yes, no drywall back then, just laths and plaster. Seeing this one can imagine why it takes so long until the interior of one of these house saved from the wrecking ball is restored to its former beauty.
