Collinsville


Collinsville is a village within the town of Canton.  The Collins family built 
an axe and machete factory alongside a waterfall on the Farmington River.  This
is the powerhouse on the opposite side of the river from the factory.

Neat reflection. I'm fascinated with old mills.

The machinery looks mysterious and complicated to me. Like the reflections of the wheels.

It was only when I visited Costa Rica that I realized what a machete was. We call it 'catana' and I thought the name came from the former Portuguese colonies in Africa, but the Japanese call it 'katana', so which came first? The egg or the hen? :-) By the way, do you know the Japanese word for thank you, 'harigato', comes from the Portuguese 'obrigado'? Funny, isn't it? :-) Actually it's not that strange as the Portuguese reached Japan in 1543.

I'm not really interested in machinery per se, but I do love the poetry of old industrial sites like this, all those rusty old cogs and wheels. Something very satisfying about it.

Ed said...

I like these old buildings and there are so many of them in Connecticut and all throughout New England. I enjoy learning about their history. Nice images.

Interesting reflection and kind of sad seeing the old buildings. It looks very peaceful.
