Parasol Tutorial, The Iron Tailor
The Iron Tailor: Parasol Workshop
Adam Cherubini, a master joyner at Pennsbury Manor Joyner’s Shop in Morrisville, Pa., built this tool chest (18 in. wide by 48 in. long by 21 in. tall) after researching 18th-century examples. It includes a number of period elements such as a single till, iron strap hinges, a crab lock, and rope handles. The chest is constructed of tulip poplar with a pine bottom. The till is made of mahogany, and the box handles are maple. The tool chest is finished with milk paint and beeswax.

Holiday Recipes The Historical Society has several hand-written books of receipts, or recipes, in our collections. Our earliest book, which appears to date to the mid-18th century, includes a recipe for gingerbread. A generation or more later, in 1801, Mrs. Whitehorne of Newport documented at least 6 recipes for gingerbread, which was clearly a long-standing holiday favorite in early Newport. Here is her recipe for Fruit Gingerbread, with modern equivalences and instructions.
