Figure 72: Old House Broom

How many times Ms. Pinkney must have swept her house with this old broom!  It is as worn-out as a broom can get.  Note that it was tied with cord, which sets it apart, for cord was a luxury in Mars Bluff homes--most brooms were tied with narrow strips of old cloth.  (Photo 1998)
