Rubbish Tuesday #5

Welcome to Rubbish Tuesday #5.
Bro O has retired from farming, which means he doesn't need all those spare parts hanging around. He has been rounding up all the old equipment and sending it off to those who want it. This seems to be the last of it. Looks like old parts of combines or cornpickers to me.

This old wheel is decorating the side of Bro's workshop. I love these old rusty wheels. I don't know where it came from. I should have asked.
These are metal boxes in the courthouse. Wills are housed here. Several are from the late 1800's. The first box is from 1944. My grandmother's will is in the 1958 box.

Come join in the fun!  The idea is to post a photograph of anything old and/or deteriorating i.e. house, barn, outbuilding, something rusty, antiques, interesting junk, or something in pristine condition, but just plain old.

Will boxes!! How interesting. Something totally new to me. Working on Genealogy a lot, I'd love to find stuff like this and check out ancestors. Wondering if each state historical/courthouses have this kinda thing.

I'll post my 'rubbish' tomorrow.

Metal wheel can be a decoration of the garden :)

Ginny said...

Wheels like this are really huge around here. Houses put them right in front by the road and sometimes plant flowers around them. Do you have a plan for the courthouse boxes? Will you paint them? There is so much you could do with them, craft supplies, sewing things, fabrics.

The rusty wheel is fun and the "will boxes" are interesting! Never heard of such a thing.

Brian King said...

Love the idea of the will boxes - the stories that must lie inside them! That's a great wheel too.

I love the old farm equipment. I didn't have anything old to post this week. I hope to find something to photograph so I can join in next week, ;)

I like those metal drawers.

I tend to take pictures of almost anything that catches my eye - walks with me can be rather slow!!
