Humble Contributions to the Peoples' History

This week’s challenge is to find beauty or interest where we might least expect it.

In walking through the neighborhood of Mt. Airy, I stumbled on the Philadelphia Salvage Company. Suitcases and trunks piled on an old railroad cart, and metal cans spilled over the sidewalk. I didn’t linger too long outside in the cold. On entering the building, I noticed a cast iron stove, pumping warm air through the building, and I warmed my hands as a looked around, mesmerized by the array of architectural salvage, from stained glass, plumbing and electrical fixtures, antique doors and windows.

A well-worn tea kettle bubbled boiling water as steam spewed from its spout.

  1. With some stories to tell, I’d bet. If tea kettles could talk, that is. Of course, they can’t, they can only whistle.

  2. Used to hang in Mt. Airy now and then way back when I lived in Phila. Loved your choice for this week.
