My contribution to Monochromia this week. Joe gave this image the perfect title, which I changed from the original title. This log cabin is part of the Wilderness Road Museum in Newbern, Virginia. The museum and surrounding cabins were closed when I road by last Sunday afternoon, but I believe the cabin was built in the early 1800s.
What does the title have to do with the photo?
Not a darn thing!
Instead, it’s referring to the fact that Joe had to remind me to post this week. And i’m sliding under the wire with 90 minutes to spare!
It looks like wood and clay.
Late or not, what a dinky wee house! I bet it got suffocating in there with a fire going and no windows….
Very nice, I will have to take a closer look next time we go that way.
Shelter from the storm! What a neat little place, although its lack of windows makes me think maybe it’s a smokehouse…I do see openings for cross beams in it. I must look at it next time I’m down that way.
Looks like a little house on the prairie. 🙂
Would it have been lived in? Surely not without any windows at all?
I couldn’t even imagine living in that house. I feel claustrophobia creeping up just imagining it. No way! I MUST have windows and doors and …. not a box in which to live. Gorgeous image, Laurie! 🌹
I’m often amazed how small some homes were in days done by And, often when a small log home is at a historic site, the tour guide will describe a large family that once lived in it, and I’m doubly amazed that everyone could fit into such a compact space.
I keep forgetting to mention that I like the changes you made to your blog. Nicely done.
I’m amazed at the way the black and white version of this log cabin looks painted. Do you see what I mean? Instead of logs, your photo capture makes it look like long swaths of black and white painted stripes. Fascinating!
