Windows


This week I'm sharing photos taken last Wednesday on a visit to the Ulster Folk Museum, a wonderful recreation of days gone by, with old thatched cottages and farm dwellings, churches and schools and traditional crafts.

  Here are several still life photos of the  tiny windows in the cottages - a look into the life of yesteryear.

  10. I so enjoyed these, Christine. I always think about how little people used to have and they made it just fine. Really makes me want to get rid of things when I see the simplicity of this place.

  11. Love these photos. Life was simple back then and it must have been difficult at times but sometimes I wish I lived then.
    The walls are so very thick and they are beautiful.

  13. nice to look at - not great to live in. :-(
    we did for eight years - two storey version. Always something to repair.

  18. This old house looks like many that are in Greece. Small and whitewashed. I didn't realize it was in Ulster till I read the text . It really is a s mall world.

  22. Nicely done. Whenever I see old structures or read the stories of those who settled the land, I often wonder how in the world did they survive. Have a blessed day.
