BEHIND THE MANTEL
"Miss Alla Lone" Puzzle piece from the 1920s
8 inches by 4 inches
There are still things behind the mantel that we can't reach. Someday we will open the area under the stairs and we'll have access to the back of the chimney area. We got these things out with a stick between some lathing strips when we removed the current mantel to refinish it. By the marks on the wall, we do not have the original mantel.
I'm am still amazed to think the little children playing with these puzzles, etc are now in their 80s.
