Recreational demonstration area

Interesting that there were recreational demonstration areas even then, when the real thing was probably going on not very far away.

Pressing business

There's an orchard close to us that makes its own cider, which is sold straight from the press through the winter. The equipment is steel now, but a cider press is still pretty much the same.

Umstead State Park

This is not far from where I work in Raleigh, NC. The Crabtree Creek Recreational Demonstration area is now William B. Umstead State Park, located on U.S. 70 near Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU).

A poem from my youth

The cider mill runs merrily
as the juicy apples fall
and the lazy farmer chuckles
as he grinds them...
worms and all.
