I didn't look, but I'd guess it's fallen plaster or random detritus... you can see where someone had swept that stuff into the corner.

Yup it was creakin.

They do take some getting used to, for sure. Thank you, will do!

Looks like a watering can for house plants, I hadn't noticed it back there!

Cool, yeah I love the look of some of the older medical equipment as well. Unfortunately they tore the place down about 10 years ago; I doubt they salvaged much, as that always seems to be the case.

@eldokid nah, it didn't look like the power was on. Plus it's all old knob and tube with who knows what nesting behind the walls - a good way to start a fire.

Now that you mention it, I don't recall seeing any indoor plumbing like a bathroom, tub or kitchen sink, but it's been a while. Maybe there was an outhouse out back...

@eldokid Yes, although they were more common for larger purchases. I found a bunch in an old hospital that were all hand-written, with giant letterheads that had wood cut prints of the company's logo or building, from somewhere in the 1880s.

@LucieLou Yeah it's certainly the first "homey" place I've posted in a while, as the other places have been large chateaus, castles or entire neighborhoods. Glad you all enjoy it!

I looked at some exterior photos from others and noticed that this hallway sits up against a differently styled structure that abuts the home, which could be a barn or storage area. The wall on the right shares a wall with the living room.

@flushed nah, but now I'm curious as to how many kilograms I weigh...

@LucieLou yeah, the bed does seem to be on wheels, I hadn't noticed. Sounds like a fun sled ride until you get to the stairs!
