I had another opportunity to go back to the Golden Ball Tavern Museum and use a wide angle lens to capture more of the rooms and hallways of this very interesting museum. Working with curators of the museum, we were trying to create some images for use in storytelling.
Although the Tavern has a long walkway to the front door, the back door was the actual entrance to the Tavern for guests coming to stay. So I tried to capture a view of this backdoor in a few different perspectives and the hallway they would be entering into. It is an amazing space to capture.
In that hallway, there is a beautiful staircase leading upstairs with low rising stairs (indicating wealth) and intricate spindles that are amazing to this day. Such spectacular workmanship.
Upstairs, there is an interesting door to one of the rooms that houses a loom. This door was designed to be lifted up and latched to the ceiling to make the opening to the room larger and more accessible.
At one point, a wall was built to separate the house to provide privacy for a son and his family when they moved in.
I also took pictures of the indoor privy, which was quite a luxury in its time as well as all the other chamber pots in the house. The kids seem to get a kick out of these.
These are a few of the images that were taken on this day:
