Photographer's Note

This is a very quaint little front porch in a very quaint little town named Durham in eastern Pennsylvania.

These days the town is no more than just a peaceful village nestled in the hills near the Delaware River. But this was not always the case. In the 1700's it was the home of the Durham Ironworks. Many of the cannons and artillery used in the American Revolution were manufactured right here. The town is also the home of the Durham boats used to ferry General Washington and his troops across the Delaware River on Christmas Day in 1776.

Very little remains of the of old ironworks. They were replaced by a grist mill which is still standing and is in good condition. You can see its reflection in the window.

One can just picture oneself relaxing in one of these rocking chairs on a warm summer day with a glass of lemonade watching the activity in the mill.
