Photo of the Week: The Back Door

Imagine a shadow on a partially opened door, the shadow of a person in colonial garb. Or maybe there’s an imaginary echo of a peg-legged pirate tapping along the stairway carrying a barrel of grain for a long journey home. Or maybe it's gunpowder.

 

Photo of the week: Weighing In

Barrels stand ready to be weighed at the Newlin Grist Mill in Concord Township. Nathaniel Newlin built the mill in 1704. It remained in use as a grist mill until 1941. It will be the site of a traditional papermaking demonstration on Saturday, Aug. 12.

A run trickles through a property on Webb Road in Chadds Ford Township, slowly eroding the area at the base of a tree over time.
