Remnants of past pleasures. Marbles, toy parts, pieces of china dolls and figurines, and decorative glass bottle stoppers found in the Haas house. Several of the marbles are of a cheap, common clay variety known at the time as "commies;" these were manufactured in the United States from colonial times into the 1920s. Glass marbles, imported from Germany beginning in the 1840s, were mass-produced in the U.S. in the early 1900s. Photo by Elizabeth Andrews.
