Who could these previous owners have been? Spies? FBI agents? Avantgarde psychologists? The questions will never end.
After all, the average person doesn’t own an electroshock therapy kit. Electroshock is typically thought of as being used as a means of interrogation, intimidation, or, frankly, unhealthy psychological therapy to help people learn to break bad habits (much like a dog with a shock collar). The fact that this was from the 1900s, though, makes it an interesting piece of history.
What Happened to the Dog?
Dog hair inside an oven: certainly not a good sign (and certainly pretty gross) when you move into a new place. And, perhaps even more concerning, what happened to the dog that resulted in its hair put in the oven?
Hopefully, the previous homeowners were good dog owners. It may have taken a while for the new homeowners to settle into using their new oven, even after cleaning it. After all, there was probably anxiety about finding a dog hair or two in their dinner.
A Bowling Champion
If you are not building your own home yourself and are buying it from someone else, you often know little about the people who once lived there. But one thing’s for certain about these previous homeowners: someone loved bowling! And, with approximately twenty trophies, they were a good bowler at that and probably part of a bowling league.
It’s too bad they left all their trophies behind. Maybe it will inspire one of the new homeowners to take up bowling.
Now many children (and even adults) like the glow-in-the-dark, stick-on stars. They light up a dark room and allow you (with the ability to place them however you want) some creativity. However, the stick-on, glow-in-the-dark stars are not everyone’s home decor aesthetic and can be seen by some as a bit childish or kitschy.
So these new homeowners may have had their work cut out for them in trying to remove all of these stars. Good luck!
A Little Sketchy
Now, this is a find with some tantalizing (albeit slightly sketchy) history. The new homeowners may have known about the previous homeowner’s spy-like profession before they moved in. Or, perhaps the previous homeowners were relatively transparent about what they did for a living, just in case they had accidentally left behind any, em, questionable objects or equipment.
Hopefully, the previous owners were working for the right government. But, hey, maybe the new homeowners can put that old equipment to good use.
