Belgian brand. I stand corrected.

The cigar boxes. La Palina is one I know works well. I missed the cigar brand info before. Later thought it was a USA brand. All their products featured images of native Americans.

A most awesome exploration! Thanks for sharing! The bike with no chain guard immediately reminded me of my pants leg getting caught up in the chain and sprocket. :oD

Very cool lamp! That glass shade is awesome. The electrical part in the foreground is an armature for a small motor. It could be from an automotive starter or generator, and some AC/DC utility motors had brushes also. The total size, weight, and large batteries needed would prohibit use for the model plane though.

Kids burning to death, being dismembered as body parts are cut off, etc.. You damned kids will be perfect, or we will beat you until you are! How many of them survived to adulthood fully intact?

A brand from the USA that featured images of native Americans. I'd date that to the mid 1930s. I grabbed all the cigar boxes I could get when I was a kid. I'd be poking though every little detail in that attic.

That's fantastic. Note the adjustable seat and footrest to adapt as the child grows.

Holy smokes! Third Reich stuff found in the wild? That's amazing. There's museums that would want to stuff. Note the short simple addresses. From a time when the post office and carrier knew everyone's name and letters didn't need anything more.

Now that's a fantastic piece! Is it a chamber pot? It can be, give me a minute.

I've never seen anything even remotely like that. Lines with arrows have a distance marking for something. There might be a clue in the writing near the name. Very curious!

Well, yeah! Must view the history. I'd be looking in every corner, especially any attic and cellar areas.

This place is just cool on top of cool. Even comes with a scale to weigh the "crops" from the greenhouse.

Actually from 1934? That paper looks very new. Amazing how well preserved this place is and nobody wants to fix it up to live there? I can't wrap my head around that.

Move-in ready as far as I'm concerned. That place is awesome.

You won't notice the railing or the lamp when the zombies are eating you.
