    Those guns look remarkably similar to the British BL 6inch Mark XIX Gun...

    https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&...J1nXcxwgpqAKM:



    I wonder if, that late in the war, the US was manufacturing the guns under license for use by US troops in Europe.

But before I do this I want to make a functioning cannon commemorative to the 1836 era

    nice pic of fire engine watering the desert. The tyres (tires) look substantial for the real deal though. doubt the water storage would last long without a hydrant or dam nearby. thanks Jon for this one as usual.

    Vintage work crew photos-img951066.jpg
    This is a picture of the building my boss bought. Built in 1844 as a harness and wagon shop. Just one of many old shops that utilized the second story beyond what we generally are accustomed to currently. The second story ramp in Jon's picture made me think of this. I believe that the wagons were built on the second story of the building my boss bought. After the harness and wagon shop the building became a tavern which prohibition put put of business. After setting empty for awhile the building was turned into the Pinewoods hotell, then a general - grocery store that my dad frequented as a young man. Later used as an antique shop which my boss still uses it for currently after a deep rehab. Found an 1898 dime in the crawl space. The original floor was cobbles over a layer of charcoal which I found interesting as I had read that some of the first improved roads in the eastern us were topped with charcoal. Tried to post an up to date picture but it would not up load. We put the porch back on from the grocery store days. Vintage work crew photos-img951067.jpg
