Today, the Second Use field crew went to a strip-out in Queen Anne. When Flynn was removing a lintel from the wall, he discovered a hidden note from 1973. It’s odd that Jack Barbour had the foresight that someone would be removing the lintel carefully, rather than knocking the whole house down. It’s just another reminder that you really are preserving history when you salvage. You never know what you’re going to get!
