DIAMOND DELAWARE, COLONIAL STILL 387 Photograph by B. Anthony Stewart VISITORS TO HENLOPEN ACRES CAST PENNIES INTO THE WISHING WELL At this old house, near Rehoboth, time has turned back to colonial days. There is an ox team to haul wood (see Color Plate VI), and one gets a drink by using the sweep. Photograph by Roydon L. Hammond CORK FROM THE NORTH COAST OF AFRICA COMES TO WILMINGTON On the day of arrival of this Spanish ship, another vessel anchored with quebracho, the "axbreaker" wood from South America. Thus, one of the lightest cargoes and one of the heaviest were handled side by side. The former is used in insulation and floor-covering manu facture, and the other chiefly as a source of tannic acid for tanning leather.
