Cut-glass age

top notch discoveries today.
found an AMAZING very large and heavy framed map of baltimore city from 1972 outside of an abandoned warehouse near clipper mill.

i just realized i am really thirsty.

"There was a rough stone age and a smooth stone age and a bronze age, and many years afterward a cut-glass age. In the cut-glass age, when young ladies had persuaded young men with long, curly mustaches to marry them, they sat down several months afterward and wrote thank-you notes for all sorts of cut-glass presents- punch-bowls, finger-bowls, dinner-glasses, wine-glasses, ice-cream dishes, bonbon dishes, decanters, and vases- for, though cut glass was nothing new in the nineties, it was especially busy reflecting the dazzling light of fashion from the Back Bay to the fastnesses of the Middle West."
