Week Five – Communication

Week Five – Communication

Week Five¬† – Communication. This “old” phone graces the wall of our bar. I think it’s interesting that even though we are living in the most technologically advanced moment in human history, we are still drawn to the charm of the past. I don’t think any of us would want to trade our internet and smart phones for Pennsylvania 6-5000 and Millie the Operator, but the aesthetic is very pleasing.

 

Brick Tea

Brick Tea

Day 312 – After the first presidential debate, I thought this would be a good photo to post. This is brick tea. It is dried and pressed into bricks for transport. This was the form of tea that the colonists threw into Boston Harbor. The other side is pressed into squares that could be used for trading. For example, one square of brick tea could be traded for a chicken.
