On Saturday, we had a rather unusual event taking place in town: Laundry Day, arranged by the Textile Museum, to show how this was done a hundred years or so ago.
On 10 March, I had a post here entitled Looking Forward, Looking Back. That included a photo of a mural painting in our Town Hall of how people used to do their washing in the river back in those days. The Town Hall was built in 1910 and celebrates its centenary this year.
Yesterday’s post Going Back In Time also had some pictures of Saturday’s festivities, including the possibility to take a ride around the park on a horse-drawn wagon.
Today, since I intend to partake as usual in Mosaic Monday at Mary’s Little Red House, I’m sticking to collages, and taking the opportunity to give you the “overall view”. But it was perfect photo weather and I took nearly 100 shots, so I intend to get a few more blog posts out of them. I’ll be showing more detail another day.
