We live in an old duplex built before the turn of the LAST century. As a result, we find some interesting things sometimes. A recent construction project which involved tearing out our kitchen ceiling resulted in some very cool finds.
What we found:
- A sheet of paper describing Raymond’s Pectoral Plaster and its’ uses
- A Postcard from Meriden Connecticut postmarked 1909
- A bible lesson copyrighted 1896
- A piece of glass with a label from Monroe Pharmacal co in Rochester NY
- Bits and pieces of glass, some labeled some not, one which had ‘Buffalo NY’ etched in it
- 3 ceramic white tubes with knobs at the end
- a clothespin
- some very short lengths of copper piping
- A metal mesh ball with a hole at the bottom and a spike at the top
I have no idea what most of this stuff is but I find it fascinating that it was all piled up together in our ceiling. If you have any thoughts let us know! More Detailed Pictures Below:

very cool! I found porn negitives when I tore out the basement… I thought it was a great find!
Your house is a historical gold mine! If you don’t want it, I suggest asking the RMSC if they’re interested.
