This is so cool!
So, all the shops on period drama's set were actual stores who agreed to let the production's prop and set people make their storefronts look like they were from 1890s Manhattan.
We stopped into one store and they were selling antiques. We bought this amazing hand drill! It works perfectly for something that's probably a hundred years old.
Btw the store owner said the production didn't use any of her antiques for props, because the antiques look antique and the props have to look like new.
@bunny_jane I imagine all that's long been taken care of, but wouldn't it be fun to be an extra in something like that.. ^_^
@porsupah it would have been a blast. I love frilly victorian clothing! Maybe i could have brought a friend or partner and then we could have pretended to be two wlw in a "Boston Marriage" as they used to say.
Ah well, I'm sure they had more than enough extras. Troy hosts that Victorian Stroll every year, so there's probably lots of people with their own costumes ready to go.
@bunny_jane oh hey I remember my dad having one of those around when I was a kid, I think it looked exactly the same or very similar
@behold3r my grampa had one too. They're great I love them. I also have an egg beater that works the same way.
