Our second full day in the Historic District found us visiting some familiar sites and experiencing something new: our first social call to the private home of a CW interpreter!
We started our day with a lively conversation with the printers in the Printing Office. Since we were the only visitors to the shop for about 15 minutes, we had their undivided attention.
a previous post, we met Brett Walker on Duke of Gloucester Street not far from his shoemaker shop last April, and later met some of his children on Market Square. They graciously extended the invitation to come visit on this trip, and we all enjoyed the chance to chat and get to know each other a little better. That's Mr. Walker leaning against the door frame behind Karen, and Levi between the door and window on the other wall. More evidence of how small the world is: some of the Agnew children had attended Mrs. Walker's mother's Sunday School class when the Agnews lived in Michigan years ago.
