This photograph depicts the parlor of the Weaver family during the early 1900's. The room reveals a late Victorian interior, complete with with many of the details associated with the period. The mantel is draped with a heavily patterned cover. Victorian interor decoration was keynoted by eclecticism, and use of multiple patterns and colors in the same room. No space was left unfilled. Drapery was everywhere, to prevent the fading of carpets and wallpapers. Strong colors such as deep red, blue and purple were used with abandon. Knick-knacks, family pictures, and other objects covered every surface.
