Makers Mark

Up in the attic of Bulloch Hall, you find some items of interest.  This happens to be one of the spinning wheels that are stored up there.  I was looking at details of the wooden wheel and was drawn to this mainly because of the beautiful light that was streaming in the window.  On closer inspection, I saw the makers mark stamped into the end.  I expect the maker was W (maybe William) McDonald but don’t actually know how old this piece is or where it came from.

I love mysteries like this where you find a reference to something in the past and it leads you on a search for the history behind it.  Maybe I will be able to uncover the origins of this and maybe not.  It is fun none the less, to capture these images and try to see what history you can discover.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
