Early 20th Century Grooming
I took these pictures awhile ago when I was touring the upstairs bedrooms and bathrooms in the main house of the Goodwood estate, an antebellum plantation house which was built circa 1840 and has been restored to its early 20th century appearance. You can read about the history of the estate here. Bottles containing cologne, alcohol, and bay rum can be seen on the dresser in the first shot. Pond's extract, violet ammonia, and spirits of camphor are sitting on the dresser next to the top hat in the second shot. The third picture shows antique bottles on a shelf over the sink in one of the bathrooms. You can see the reflection of an old claw foot bathtub in the mirror.
