Women Behind Bars (Doing Preservation), Part II

Here’s the finished product of the women inmate’s work.  As the photo caption says “Out from the shop to its place in the home.” Shined up to within an inch of its life I might add.  The desk on the left is interesting.  Looks like it began its life as a pianoforte (the folding lid is still evident in the photo).  Given the mighty swelling of legs it appears to date to the mid-nineteenth century (Bronson, Folger ownership possibly?)
