mid-1950s Time Capsule, NC

There are a few highways I drive on in North Carolina that feel like the gift that keeps on giving. What's even better are the surprises that happen like pulling over to investigate a potential location and realizing that there is something even cooler behind it, something you might miss if you weren't paying attention....

In this case, we stumbled upon a small split level house that felt like walking into a time capsule from the 1950s. From what I could tell, this dwelling belonged to a male school teacher of some sort, probably some sort of home school system. He enjoyed reading quite a bit and had many magazines from the 1950s. It was really fascinating to me to see the advertisements and stories that lined the inner pages of these magazines. I tried to document things as best I could, given that it was a very small space and I was sweating like James Brown. Enjoy ;)

That Erector set tin has held up fairly well considering the environment.

I really enjoy when things are still in good enough condition to read. That house has held up quite well.
