Signs of Pilgrims Rest II


Another post on the gorgeous museum village of Pilgrims Rest, which we
visited late last year.   As per previous posts, most buildings are as
they were in times gone by and are being used as actual stores,
hotel space or living museums ...               This blue building is the original
general dealer (grocer etc.etc.) so it is set up as a real store back
in the times of the gold rush.   It  great to walk around and see the
 wares "on sale" and other wonderful items for that time. 
I loved the texture and detail on the outside and of course the gorgeous red and

Another store sign in the area ... selling arts & crafts and also serving
as a restaurant.   This is the same place where we stopped to enjoy

Enjoyed looking back at your other P.R. posts. Interesting that the whole town has become a museum.

In response to Garden of Daisies - Yes well it's a small town (one main road and literally 2 or three sub roads, it's in a valley in the middle of nowhere)......
BUT it's gorgeous!!!

Thanks for popping by!

The Pepsi sign is great. I like the idea of preserving the actual buildings as living museums.
