Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Anything Man Made

Another great topic for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge. Being a history junkie, I chose the theme of historical items. Some of these might have a well-known aspect to them, and some may not!

(Click on any picture to zoom-in on its detail!)

General Lew Wallace’s violin maker’s case. In addition to hand-crafting violins, General Wallace (1827-1905) found time to command a Civil War unit, serve as the governor of the New Mexico Territory and as a minister to Turkey, while writing the novel ‘Ben Hur’ in his spare time!

A split rail fence adorned by a couple of turkeys! This fence stands at the 1840s Connor Prairie Pioneer Village.

Column and roof decoration at the Indiana State Capitol building which opened in 1888.

The front of Broadway Tavern & Hotel in Madison; it is Indiana’s oldest hotel established in 1834.

The feature picture is the Pavilion / Beach House at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. The building opened to the public in 1930 and restoration efforts are in progress at this time.
