    We were looking for a historical marker about my sister-in-law's ancestor when we found this old historical iron works. Turned out he was famous for constantly filing lawsuits against them for stealing all the water and polluting it back in the 1700s. We did finally find the historical marker just a few miles away from here.

    The added texture is a photo I took of dried cracked beach sand.

      I'm always amazed at the ingenuity of some of these old works. Wasn't it Newton that made the comment about standing on the shoulders of giants. Whose shoulders did these guys stand on! Neat capture!

      You weren't far from where I live, just a couple towns over. What's really interesting is that I've never need here. Nice capture.
