  1. This was my area in the Industrial Revolution sequence - down by the water wheel. The original idea was that during the Green and Pleasant Land sequence the water wheel would have much smaller and "cottage" like and then during the Industrial Revolution sequence it was to be replaced by the above "industrial" much bigger wheel. However due to the cut back in the time of the overall Industrial Revolution sequence they had to drop this change as there was no time/was too complicated. Also the river/creek was originally much bigger but again it had to be scaled back as rehearsals got under way (a

  2. Not sure if this has been mentioned anywhere already, but I ran into this while searching for weightlifting.
