Basement hallway, Blair House, Saint Paul (click to enlarge)
Broken, mossy pillars, Pompeii (click to enlarge)
Blair House, where I live in St. Paul, was built in 1887. This hallway runs in front of Common Good Books, Garrison Keillor's bookstore. Pompeii was founded in the 8th-6th C BC, and was destroyed by an eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD. It was rediscovered in 1748, and excavations proceeded through the 18th and 19th centuries and well into the 20th.
What will the archeologists find when they dig up Blair House after two thousand years?
