really Katie? That's one object I can identify, my dad's dad for sure!

And Jeekinz, that is priceless sez bz as she sets off to try to determine if that house had internet wiring


VeraBlue, I was wandering around the house today looking at my framed family photos and found one of my dad at 5 months in his high chair. I also have in my possession my mom's high chair. No doubt, they are high chairs, from the front side, back, nothing esoteric about the early 1900's high chairs.

That is really interesting--and it is a real optical illusion in a way.
And while pictures may have taken a little while to "take", not 20 minutes worth, at this time in photography history.
They are really nice pictures.

I agree it's a radiator. But without seeing the original, I cant tell if there's a table there. I played around with different filters and settings in Photoshop and came up with this. If you drew a line from the window sill, it lines up with what I believe to be a window just to the right of the photo...judging by the shadow line. Also if you look closely at the radiator, the light source is projecting from 1:00 to 7:00.

I can just barely make out the outlines I drew in red.

It is really strange looking and I have no idea what it can be. If anyone figures it out please post it. Thanks.

I recall seeing photos, never had the real thing. Can you tell how jealous I am of you now? I hate to hijack a thread, and we can move this to pm if that would be more polite...but what have you done with the high chairs? Are you displaying them, somehow?? I would be, if I had 1900 high chairs....

Yeah. Come to thnk of it, why would anybody want 1900 high chairs? Most families do just fine with one or maybe two if they have twins.

Why is there a chair in the naughty corner with my name on a brass plaque?

And why is it a high chair?

I have one HC, my mom's from 1919. Yes. I have it displayed. I have the guest bedroom done in, well, can't say anitque furniture because the chest of drawers is from my childhood , but some furniture is antique. I have the bed my mom's parents bought when they set up housekeeping in 1912, it is an inexpensive pine bed. Also have a desk from my folks home, two treadle sewing machines for tables and the high chair in the corner holding a few stuffed animals. Oh, there is also a reproduction wash stand a friend made for us.

Us three kids used the high chair, or so my mom says
