Livingroom of Geddy House. Mr. Geddy had a foundry and silversmith shop. The women is potraying his mother, explaining what life is like in the 18th Century.
Taking a break before I head home. Notice the Courthouse in the background. To your right is part of the Magazine building. Right after the Boston Tea Party, the British stole all the gun powder from this sight because they were afraid that the Virginians were going to support what happened in Boston.

Salud. To your health. Happy Saint Patrick's Day.
Goodnight. Next.
