A quick note on the try works shelter

John had written in earlier asking about a shelter over the try works. He recalled seeing a shelter in some photos but not in others. As best as we can tell, there was no permanent structure sheltering the try works before 1904. Here are a couple of photos from around 1902-1904.

As you can see, there was a temporary canvas set up, but that’s all.

The next set of photos we have are from 1906, and a permanent shelter is now in place.

We’re restoring the Morgan to her 1880 – 1900 configuration, so we won’t be adding the shelter over the try works.

Sorry about the long delay between posts. I’ll have more up soon!
