The cover photo is of a croatal bell ca. 1790's found in Chippenhook.  These bells were attached to bridles and harnesses alerting pedestrians of oncoming horse drawn carriages and sleighs. 

The photo below is of a Victorian Era (1837 - 1901) bird whistle found in the same vicinity (corner of Walker Mtn. Road and Gravel Pit Rd - the site of the old Pencil Mill).  The body of the bird holds water that produces a chirping sound.  A second identical bird whistle (not shown) was recovered at the old J. Weeks home on Bump Road as seen on the 1869 map.
