Here are a few pics from an old town called Laws in the Sierras. it is was a train stop in 1900 this is a Mechantile store kinda the way it was in 1910.
The old general stores and hardwares are totally cool. My paternal grandfather owned and operated an old hardware store in Florida when I was growing up.
When I first moved to PA in 1990 there was a little countrystore 2 miles away and was the nearist place to gas up without going all the way into town. I shopped there 5 years before I found out that the little stairs in the back of store lead to a full blown old fashioned hardware store upstairs full of both new and neat old stuff that had been on the shelves for YEARS! I found an all aluminium housing B&D drill from the 60s NIB for $15 there. It was trully like stepping thru a time warp! WAY COOL!
