What A Great Thing To Do!

This guy had in his will that his house was to be shut up for 100 years after his death as a type of “time capsule” so folks could see what life was like that long ago!:wink:

Of course, it wasn’t all that impressive what they found - mildew, mostly.

:slight_smile:

Q

I was gonna say, you better hermetically seal that shit.

I think it’s funny that the guy wanted to show what “life was like” except he himself was totally rich and eccentric, and his house was nothing like anyone else’s house during the period :smiley:

Beautiful stuff, tho. Too bad they had to put all that money in to restoring it.
