In the latest issue of the Upper Falls News, I wrote about my daughter bringing home one of the rusted railroad spikes from the Upper Falls Greenway construction site and my wife’s kitchen experiments in de-rust’ing. After a few attempts she hit a working formula, soak it in a Ziploc bag full of ketchup on a radiator for a few days … and repeat.
An UF News reader and neighbor, Margaret Alexander just sent these photos of a homemade Christmas present that she and her husband Mick gave to their sons this year.
The hardware was also retrieved from the Upper Falls Greenway site and turned into a neighborhood historical artifact. How cool is that?
