Remodeling finds (behind the wall)

Will be taking up this topic in Monday's column. But in the meantime, here's an email from Ed and Jan Reynolds.

"As we remodeled the bathroom (originally a bedroom) in our 100+-year-old farmhouse, we found shards of a delicate bud vase, a tiny bottle that once held strychnine sulph. crystals, a three-inch cow horn grouped with several dessicated ears of corn, a section of a 1913 Spokesman-Review, and a June 1909 issue of Green's Fruit Grower."

Della Stevens found an empty whiskey bottle. She thinks that might explain some of the workmanship she has encountered.

Don Ide discovered a couple of pairs of bibbed overalls being used as insulation.

A few years ago, a bathroom project at Jill Wakeling's house revealed lots of Spokane newspapers from the 1960s. "My three daughters had fun looking at the articles and advertisements."

What really blew their mind? "Three television channels."
