Old Sturbridge Village is a living museum of what life was like in the 1830’s in New England. The buildings are authentic, the actors well trained and the craftsmen and farmers pursue their seasonal tasks exactly as they would have performed them in that time period.
Each winter, Old Sturbridge Village hosts a day when antique sleighs from all over the region can come and participate in a rally of sorts. This year was special as the winter was cooperative for a change: there was plenty of snow and the temperatures—although cold—were, after all, seasonal!
There are four posts in this Old Sturbridge Village – winter series: this one and numbers two, three and four. The ‘Like’ button is turned on for this first post only. That way, if you do not want to bother with the others, you need not feel compelled to do so.
Before viewing the photographs, I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. As always, special thanks to my dearest spouse Lyn, who does most of the hard part: the photos selection. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.
