Behind the mirror

We have begun work on the third bedroom, and in doing so I removed an old (and ugly) mirror which had been built into the wall.

Behind the mirror I found the front pages of 2 different newspapers (one dated 1868 and one dated 1872), half a shirt, half a waistcoat (?), 3 folded half pages from a book (unclear of the date but makes references to things that happened between 1830-50), and some (presumably) original wallpaper.



This is the latest thing we have found. In a cupboard in the second bedroom is a pencil list (of linen, we think) dated 1898 and in bedroom one the fireplace is dated 1761.
