This summer, I stayed with my husband at the old mountain inn where my father worked as a musician in the 1950s. When I wrote a blog post about the place, readers wrote to ask me, "What do you mean the ceilings were made of tin? How could a ceiling be made of tin?"
So on this visit with my parents, I took a photo of the painted tin ceiling in the dining room. The inn was built in 1894 so that ceiling is over 100 years old. I'm guessing it's been painted a few times. Downstairs in the bar, which has a similar ceiling, I stood up on a bar stool and knocked on the ceiling to see if it sounded like tin. It did.
