OK, here another one is. (Actually 2, but just pics of 1). The real pegs just shows quality that screws can't match. My 2 (was 5), was made by a local furniture maker in his small shop. I knew him well as a kid in the late 50's I loved him telling about the old days. He told me how to find the old water mill(still in operation then) & stagecoach stop N. of town & the owner was as interesting & about as old as the furniture maker. I soaked up everything they told me about pre 1900 ways. The furniture maker was in his 90's when I made friends & was 6 yrs old when the enemy invaded during the Atlanta campaign.
I've tried to remember a time when these weren't around our breakfast table (made by the same man) and can't. That makes me think about 1951-2.
I used the backdrop as a tease to the Yankees. They invaded again in the 2nd half of the 20th century, so I gave up & moved further South. Now they are invading here!!!
