People of Genesee Country Village

Here at Genesee Country Village and Museum in Mumford, NY there are many people in traditional wear.  Here we are at the gun shop where they are assembling long rifles.  This was a very dark room and I don’t use a flash in a museum setting so this is all natural light and high ISO.

I will include a few rare people shots here at the Genesee Country Village as they were in 18th and 19th century dress.  Here is the brewmaster at the working brewery.   They actually make beer or ale here but none is for sale or can be consumed as its made the old fashioned pre-stainless steel way.

Woodworking Planes in the Carpentry Shop

At Genesee Country Museum in Mumford, NY, they have a wonderful carpentry or woodworking shop.  The lights were off in there this day and it was super dark.  I took this image with no flash and no tripod by cranking up the ISO.  These are all wooden molding planes with some rebate planes stacked on the shelves.  Each plane cuts a different shape or profile. On many you can see boxwood wear strips which are the bright yellow or lighter wood strips.

At Genesee Country Museum in Mumford, NY they have several log cabins and houses and this one is a large two story one.  It is very spacious really, with a chimney and all.  Inside they are demonstrating broom making in the traditional Shaker way.

Canoes on the Green at Paul Smith’s

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , ,

Here we are at Paul Smith’s College in the Adirondacks and walking around “the green” or large open field.  Here many of the 270-300 canoes wait to go out on the water or be sold to members of the WCHA or Wooden Canoe Heritage Association. The canoe on the extreme left is a wood and canvas canoe with a two wood kayaks next to it. The next few are wood “strippers” because they are made of many wooden strips glued together and covered with fiberglass cloth and epoxy. I guess they are hybrids. The tent in the background is one of many where they do workshops on building canoes and forms along with paddles and seat caning.   For more on the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association see: WCHA.
