We visited New Hope, PA yesterday. The “father” of the town was a man named Benjamin Parry. His former home is now a museum operated by the New Hope Historical Society. The home was occupied by the family from the Colonial period through the early 1960s. Rooms were decorated with family “artifacts” from the Colonial period through the late Victorian period (late 1800s?). Displayed in one of the bedrooms was this, Mr. Parry's grooming kit.

Totally cool, Charlie!  Thanks for posting.  I wonder what was intended to go in all those jars.

Hi, Ricardo. How are you these days? I hope all is well. It finally feels like autumn is beginning to assert itself here...

Re: the kit. I’m just guessing, but maybe mustache wax, ink, snuff, herbs, tea, natural remedies, tobacco. What else would a gentleman of the period want to stash in his kit?
