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.

How many pacific and refreshing revolutions...
Wow, beautiful old fan !
Nice choice for this theme, Lois !
REVOLUTIONS, not only the fan and its blades, but the design of fans over the years.
I remember fans that were similarly designed! Watch your fingers!
gosh, that's just dang pretty!
What a wonderful old fan!
Oh, that one does stir up some memories!! Haven't seen one like that in a LONG time!! Great one for the day as always, Lois!!
I like the style of the fan.
Gosh that's an old beauty Lois, I wouldn't mind having one like that now :)
I remember seeing fans like these when I was a kid. I don't think I've ever seen one so shiny and clean.
It looks like it was made of gold. A wonderful piece!
An oldie but goodie. Sure is in great condition. Looks ready to make a few revolutions and cool the room.
That is an absolutely beautiful fan, Lois. Nice choice for the "revolution" theme day.
I LOVE old fans. I love this so much Lois!
That's a fabulous choice for the theme Lois 😊
That's very beautiful.
Now that's one classy fan. Tom The Backroads Traveller
