What was lost is now found and appreciated

This is one example of the interesting tidbits that we have found during construction. It is an emblem off an old Nash car. Nash made cars from 1917 to 1954 and was the car that the old TV detective Columbo drove.

Our old house was first built in the late 1940s when people sometimes threw trash into a pit in the yard, so we have retrieved interesting pieces of glass, metal, and of course, miniature superheroes. We will incorporate all of the bits glass and metal bits into some sort of art project for the garden when we are done.


  1. That appears to be a very, very early Nash emblem - as in the late teens, so among the first Nashes ever. It seems by 1920 they had gone to a stamped and painted logo, then to an altogether different shape, followed by a script logotype. Cool find!
