Dorothy Bradbury’s home reflects a pride in ownership you don’t see as much of these days. Belongings that she has collected over her 91 years are polished and presented, neat as a pin, in perfect working order. Raised in the country as one of five children, Mrs. Bradbury was taught to take care of what you have, to not be wasteful, and make use of everything. As she says, “What you take out of the soil, you must put back”.

It’s a bit disorienting as everything looks brand-new.
