    Incredible. I wonder if she still had her father's clothing? He is wearing a fantastic white suit in one of the photos! British collectors would get rather excited by that.

    It's amazing that for a house in such decay, moths and other critters didn't eat the collection to dust.
     
  3. Decay? For a hundred twenty five plus year old house, it's pretty good. Honestly if you could see some of the decay I saw while househunting!

    After living in Buffalo and house-hunting in late 19th-century rental houses, I know what you mean.:D For a late 19th-century house, I agree it looks to be in good shape. I meant decay in the sense of slow deterioration, which I think plaster and wallpaper falling off the ceiling/walls suggests.

    I'm curious to see what other household stuff will go up for auction too.

    It's in disrepair, but certainly not 'decaying'. What a treasure trove of wonderful clothing………makes me miss being in the UK, which at this time of year, is always difficult at best
