Here is the recipe for Joan’s world famous cinnamon rolls.  Well, I don’t know that they are in fact world famous, but many people have received this recipe while touring Sherbrooke Village.

This is the recipe as set for printing in the Sherbrooke Village print shop.  The letters, cast in reverse, are laid out by hand in the holders.  The letters are inked and paper pressed over the letters to create a printed copy of the recipe.

You can watch the printers set the text and print other items.  The printers, like everyone at Sherbrooke Village, are willing to talk about their trades for as long as you want.  One could easily spend a full day wandering the town chatting with various people.

Here is a wall in the blacksmith’s shop at Sherbrooke Village in Nova Scotia.  This is a heritage site depicting a typical Nova Scotian village from 1860 to pre-World War I.  For you east coast Americans, Sherbrooke Village is set up sort of like Jamestown and Williamsburg in Virginia.  Interpreters dress in period costumes and wander about town and the functional homes and shops educating visitors on Nova Scotian life during that period of time.

I seem to be attracted to blacksmith shops.  They always seem to be full of interesting compositions, such Grant-Kohrs Ranch in Montana, and Saugus Ironworks outside Boston.

Sherbrooke Village even has a photography camp that looks interesting for beginner and intermediate photographers.  That is, if you enjoy dorm style accommodations and shared bathrooms.
