Hidden History #24 – The Knob

This door knob holds years of memories

It has meaning to me, but no one else would have any idea.

The door knob on the bakery is the actual door knob from my bedroom door as a child.

Who knew when the hardware in the house was updated that the old knob would find such a meaningful home?

Not me.

Hidden History #23 – The Shovel

The cap, the bandana and the shovel.

The cap, the bandana and the shovel.  All things a railroad worker might have used.

Typical railroad decor with hidden history.  The shovel actually belonged to my grandson.  My husband bought it for him as a small child to work alongside him on jobs, making him feel an integral part of the project.

My grandson is now over 6 ft tall so the shovel is far too “small”, but it holds a “large” piece of our heart.

Random me:  I remember helping me dad paint our house as a teenager, realizing I had no idea how to paint!

Hidden History #12 – 8mm Childhood Memories

Not just any movie reel, this one held our memories.

I am grateful my dad took movies of my childhood.

Didn’t (at the time) realize their importance.

The 8mm film has long since been converted to DVD.

The original movie reels have been converted to hidden history #12

Hidden History #6 Seemingly Insignificant

Observe the book on the park bench.

It’s open to page 134

Notice the book on the park bench.  Seemingly insignificant random item.

Not to us.

It is open to page 134 which represents our USPS postal indicia number.

Actually not insignificant at all, it is a very important number to our business.
