Ready for winter

 

I think these were the fraternity houses or dormitories at the University of Virginia. Scanned slide from 1971.

Le bois est ramassé pour l'hiver. Jolies couleurs.

Somebody at the end is being nosey
Tom Wilson: As I was, after I took the pic smile
They must have large fire places Tom, judging by the size of the logs.
Tom Wilson: Old style 19th century fireplaces, Chad.
Love that you caught someone peeking in the window.
Tom Wilson: Yes, a nice touch, I thought smile I was peeking later smile
One wonders at the size of the fireplaces when looking at the size of those logs.
Tom Wilson: I think one could use the word "substantial"!

1971 seems like last week but then I realise that it's 45 years ago! EEEK!! Enough wood there for a decent fire for a coming of evenings. I like the commonality of colours here.
Tom Wilson: Frightening, isn't it - how time flies!

Presumably "the servants" will chop them smaller
Tom Wilson: Possibly - although given the age of the buildings, the fireplaces may be very big!
Nice logs
Tom Wilson: Good wood, eh?
