In the museum at Nazareth Campus.
Called a Counselor's chair.


Hand carved by the sisters in the 1800's for the church.


Queen Anne furniture in the parlor at the campus.


Side chair


Waiting room chairs.
No cushions?
Maybe the wait is not long.


My favorite chair in the museum.
When I worked in the hospital in the late 50's these were the type of wheerchirs that were used.
Very bulksome to deal with.


Common seat in our town.


Seats filled every Sunday.


Our own personal private hanging out seat.


My seat at Rehab by the lake.


Pick your seat and have a cuppa with me.

Oh wow! So many wonderful photos of different sort of chairs. For some reason I like the Waiting Room chairs. But I don't know why - maybe they remind me of something!

Oh, I really do love your selection of chairs. I love antiques and your antique chairs are wonderful. I also really like the victorian furniture.

The wheelchair is pretty cool, but thank goodness for newer technology.

The church looks beautiful for a quite wedding.

I have not seen a counsellor chair.

Great set of chairs! I couldn't resist sitting in that counselor's chair even though it is rather confusing.On second thought maybe one of those handsome rockers would be better?

I think this was one of your best shoot ever! One of these days I will start learning about chairs -- styles and things. But I can appreciate all of them. We have some children's chairs too...great stuff.

Rebecca said...

Wow you went all out and found some cool stuff!
