The Linden House Antiques
Wilmington, DE 19808
|This sweet little box is 3-3/8" long, 2-1/2" deep, and 1-3/4" high. It is lined in black velvet, and shows a scene of the Hoosac railroad tunnel, West end. Inside are a pair of crystal drop earrings, one of which is missing a crystal. There are also 2 odd small cufflinks, a hairpin, and a sterling clasp, as well as a pair of heavy black metal shoes. The Hoosac railroad tunnel is 4-3/4 miles long, and runs from Florida, MA at the east end to North Adams on the west. Construction of the tunnel began in 1848, and wasn't completed until 1875, during which time 193 died in the building of it.|
