Weekend Weathervanes

 Ye Old Stagecoach… Dodgingtown, CT.

Now I know what to do with those photos – “thanks” to Heather Wilkinson Rojo at Nutfield Genealogy; she blogs Weekly Wednesday Weathervanes  in New Hampshire.  Please check out her page and enjoy the many unusual weathervane photos and often be entertained with a history lesson. It’s amazing at what you can encounter in your travels – You Just Need To Look Up!

I was pleasantly surprised when I spied “Ye Old Stagecoach” high above a garage in Dodgingtown, CT., a small town near Redding. This was a new area of roads for us… so our eyes were peeled for new weathervane discoveries… and we were rewarded!

The stagecoach seems to have a man riding in the back seat playing an instrument, but I’m not sure of the type. Riding in the middle, I believe, is a woman with others… and on the front seat is the driver, with a whip… and possibly another woman. The stagecoach is pulled by a team of four horses, complete with harness lines showing; love seeing the definition of the whip and spokes in the wagon wheels.

    Very nice. I think that instrument could be of the flute family?
    You really know how to find the unusual.

    This one is adorable! I’ve seen coaches and buggies on weathervanes, but never this ornate with all the people and details!
