Description 2010 RC deWinter ~ All Rights Reserved_____________________________________________In the 19th century, as supplies grew more readily available and the cost of construction decreased, many people who would not have been able to afford an extra room of any kind now added on or built new homes with a 'spare room'. This room was the place where overnight guests slept; spare rooms were also sometimes used as a storeroom for keepsakes and other objects for which there was no room elsewhere._____________________________________________At first, despite cost reductions, only the well-to-do could afford a room that served no other purpose than a place to house visitors. Gradually, the existence of a spare room became the norm and it was only the very poorest homeowners who didn't have private accommodations for company._____________________________________________Some spare rooms were lavishly outfitted, but this room in a 19th-century farmhouse is one of the 'sparest' spare rooms I've seen._____________________________________________Digital oil painting with a noticeably distressed and cracked surface; it appears rustic and classical at the same time. From an original photograph shot at Green Gables House in Cavendish, Prince Edward Island, Canada, September 2003._____________________________________________The original vintage-style photograph in black and white is also in this gallery, titled Gable Sanctuary.
