19TH CENTURY COTTAGE
FOUND IN IRELAND
Here’s a question. What would you think if we told you that time traveling is a real thing? Would you assume that we’re joking? Or that we read too many science fiction books? Fair enough. Time traveling is a mysterious concept wrapped in thousands of legends and myths and most of us will probably never figure it out whether it’s a real thing or just another creation of the seemingly limitless human imagination.
Though some people are at times lucky enough to get their chance of diving a few centuries back into the past. One of those people is a photographer named Rebecca who recently had a chance to take a look inside an eerie cottage built in the 19th century that turned out to be a historical treasure chest.
Rebecca is a photographer with a passion for exploring old abandoned buildings full of history. Recently on her webpage called Abandoned NI, she shared a post about a 19th-century farmhouse that she got a chance to explore and photograph. “An artist follows my page and his brother in law inherited the cottage,” explains the photographer.
This house is located in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, and it was lived in until 2015 by one of three brothers who did their best to keep all of their family’s history untouched. The brother who lived here was named Dessie and he stayed here alone among the relics of the past.
Here Rebecca found loads of old books, magazines, papers, photographs, frozen clocks, and old letters from more than 100 years ago. “It was so interesting because of the valuable social history that was behind the walls. It looked very unassuming from the outside so I was quite pleasantly surprised!” the photographer shared with us. One of the things she found was a newspaper that documented the aftermath of the sinking of the Titanic back in 1912.
Clancy's comment: I'd love to check out this place. Amazing, eh? Thanks, Rebecca.
