Here are my final doors from the Frazier History Museum in Louisville, Kentucky. Next week, I embark on a looooooooong series of doors from Mansfield, Ohio and Corning, New York, with a brief side trip to Elmira.
One of the installations at the Frazier chronicles pre-European life in the area. I was so focused on taking pictures I forgot to detail what I was taking pictures of. If you know, please leave the information in the comments.
Here’s a boat (I think it’s a keelboat) used to navigate up the river. You can go down with the current, but to go up, you have to sail against the wind.
Finally, here’s a model of the old Louisville water tower, which still stands and is part of the Louisville Water Tower Park.
The Louisville Water Tower, located east of downtown Louisville, Kentucky near the riverfront, is the oldest ornamental water tower in the world, having been built before the more famous Chicago Water Tower. Both the actual water tower and its pumping station are a designated National Historic Landmark for their architecture. As with the Fairmount Water Works of Philadelphia (designed 1812, built 1819–22), the industrial nature of its pumping station was disguised in the form of a Roman temple complex.
Purty, ain’t it?
