May Theme Day: Revolution


I took this picture of an antique fan in the master bedroom of the main house at the Goodwood Estate, which began in the 1830's as a cotton and corn plantation and has since been restored to what it looked like in the early 20th century. I'm not sure if the fan still works, but I'm sure those blades made quite a few revolutions back in the days when there was no air conditioning in our hot and humid Tallahassee summers! You can read more about the history of the Goodwood Estate here.

As always, the first day of the month is Theme Day in the City Daily Photo Community. Go take a look at other CDP bloggers' interpretations of this month's theme here.

REVOLUTIONS, not only the fan and its blades, but the design of fans over the years.

I remember seeing fans like these when I was a kid. I don't think I've ever seen one so shiny and clean.

An oldie but goodie. Sure is in great condition. Looks ready to make a few revolutions and cool the room.
