And from the ceiling rained...

Most of the crap that falls from the ceiling we shovel into plastic bags, toss in the dumpster and don't give it a second thought. Occasionally something interesting catches your eye and you go...OOH treasure! Like the key from the Canton Furnace Co. in Utica, N.Y. That was midway through the bathroom ceiling and I could hear it bouncing around as I whacked the plaster so I caught it before it even came down. Then there's the piece of cardboard from over the bathroom toilet "closet" which hints at the house's past...scrawled in cardboard it says FURNISHED ROOMS BATH. Eric thought the house may have been used as a rooming house since the living room pocket doors were created to be sealed and have their own private entrance. The homemade signs says he may be right!
