If you have a photo of a neat find from your house please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail.com thanks.

Thanks to a reader for sending the second neat find from Stronghold:

“We found this bottle of whiskey in a wall when we renovated the kitchen in our house. The house was built in the early 1900s, 1918 I think, although we also found a newspaper dated 1911. Unfortunately, the bottle was empty”

The reader did a little digging and found:

” Kinsey, as best as I can tell was a whiskey distillery located in Linfield, PA. It had a long, complicated and at times confusing history that goes back to 1891 when it was founded by the 33 year-old Jacob G. Kinsey, includes a dark period during Prohibition, and concludes in 1979 when the bottling line shut down for the last time.”
