Where I Stood…

This is the floor of a display in the Plymouth Historical Museum. Why is this floor in such bad shape? Because it’s full of BB’s. The floor is from the old Daisy factory where the Red Ryder BB guns were manufactured. Why was I at the Museum yesterday? To be a roadie for Mark, while he gave a talk on old radios.

Arranging the display…


Playing with the radios

Now, for a small rant. This is what makes me nuts. I’m sure all municipalities deal with bureaucracy, but I think this is one of the dumber moves. Her is a photo of a monument next to the museum.

Nice monument, pretty rock. I wonder what it’s for. Let’s read the plaque.

Hmmm…Plymouth Plank Road, and toll gate #4 were right here, on this site. How historic. What could the lower plaque say?

So let me get this straight. The only reason for this pretty rock to be standing here is to mark a historic site. And to preserve this rock, that is here to mark this site, we moved the rock. Ah, why is this rock here again?

Where I Stand Sunday is an ongoing photo essay examining the different places Lynn Krawczyk spends her life standing. Too often we take for granted the everyday places we spend our lives walking on. If you’d like to join her by posting a photo on Sunday of places you’ve been on your blog/photo hosting site/website, leave a comment on her Sunday posts telling her where she can find you/your photo and she’ll add a link to her sidebar so others can find you. I am one of those that Lynn has badgered into joining her, I have changed it to “where I stood”, because right now I’m sitting in front of the computer, not standing anywhere.

  1. I love the beat up wood floor and it looks like Mark had a good time with his radios.

    So the rock marks something historic but it no longer stands in the place that it is supposed to mark and now just hangs out on the side of the building not really doing anything but existing?

    Makes perfect sense to me…

  2. Hope Mark is feeling better and wasnt in major pain while giving his talk. So the rock probably was on private property….they didn’t know what to do with it, so moved it to the historical museum. Hmmmm…a period photo would perhaps be more meaningful, give more information..but then big rock crushes paper…
