Masonic plates

Posted in Buildings by joncrispin on 16/04/2010

I started going to the Syracuse China seconds store back in the early 80s when I lived in Ithaca.  Back then they sold all kinds of great items.  I have a nice set of State of Louisiana Senate plates that I still use all the time.  And since my days at the Meadville Unitarian Church, I have loved the kind of kitchens that one finds in churches and meeting halls.  I have recently been working on a project for the New York State Museum photographing Masonic Lodges.  This shot comes from the kitchen at Western Star Lodge #15. Two birds with one stone.
