Old Sturbridge Village

Back in August, I went to Old Sturbridge Village in Massachusetts with my photography club. OSV, as it's abbreviated, is a recreation of an early 19th century New England town.

Upon first arriving, we saw these American flags planted in the ground, one for each person who donated to sponsor a military family's visit to OSV.

There are lots of folks dressed in period clothing, ready to share information about daily life in 19th century New England.

Here's Looking at You, Cow!

According to OSV's website, the Fitch House, whose parlor is pictured above, a village tradesman's house, was moved from Connecticut to its present site in 1939.

I made a lot of 2 and 3 shot panoramas with my 50mm and 135mm lenses.
