|Queen's Bridge going into South Bound Brook|
Enjoy the pics!
Saturday Oct 13th -
Brook Arts Center (Brook Theatre), 10 Hamilton St., Bound Brook, NJ 08805
|One of several large lobby mirrors.|
|If only our teen selves could see us back|
here again so many years later.
They're playing Rocky Horror Picture Show
again too, talk about a time warp!
|Looking into the theatre.|
|Now that is a ceiling.|
|Carved ceiling detail.|
Old Millstone Forge, Blacksmith Shop & Museum, 9 North River St., Millstone, NJ 08844
|Still an active furnace, they make replacement parts|
for the county historical sites.
|A photo of the old blacksmith - who was also|
constable and judge.
|Replacement horse shoes for the regular customers.|
|This is our favorite stop on the tour; |
here we learned the most - relevant perspective to frame
our thinking to today's lifestyles, the principles to
society then and now, plus - plenty of
great action and tools out to see and touch.
|I think every year this annual event gets perfect weather.|
|Picturesque hamlet just north of Princeton.|
|Greek Revival architecture, one of our favs.|
|Nearby were old terracotta factories that created the facade|
for the Woolworth building - infact, 40% of the terracotta
used in NYC on many other famous landmarks.
|An old photo of A&P - Lard .17, yick.|
|Many of the sites have cut-aways showing|
the construction of the frame.
|The ceilings didn't feel so low...|
|... but like the windows to the ceiling look.|
|Upstairs to the old doctor's office.|
|There's a great archive and photos inside.|
|Decorative molding to shape out the beams since there|
wasn't a ceiling.
|Beautiful silk wedding dress.|
|Detail of the neck.|
|One of our favorite stops on the tour.|
|Library and archives.|
|Slate roof detail.|
|Details on the old stove.|
|Love love love the patina and framed levels |
of the doorways.
|Sled propped against the doorway|
looking into the parlour.
|One nice restroom!|
|But this is what we came to see.|
|Bigger than it seems looking outside.|
|Dancing on the stairs.|
Sunday Oct 14th -
Washington Rock Park, 1 Rock Rd. West, Green Brook, NJ 08812
|Rutgers New Brunswick stadium in the distance ... |
and photo bombed by a dragonfly!
|This church has amazing architecture and |
|Looking up at the alter, massive organ on the left.|
Just love the details on the cross beams and arches.
|An impressive balcony.|
|Windows at the rear of the seating area.|
|Looking from the pulpit / lectern towards the doors.|
|Glass in the upper balcony.|
|There's something about the hand|
but couldn't hear the guide;
here are some close-ups.
