Weekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgia


One of my favorite nostalgic places is an old gas station, surrounded and filled inside with antiques, between Santa Fe and Taos New Mexico.  I’m sorry but I don’t remember the name of the little village where the station is located but it is definitely worth a stop if you are passing through.  The owner and proprietor is also extremely friendly and a wealth of information about the local area and its history.  I’ve included two shots here that might stir a few memories of years gone by.  The first one goes back to the days of wagon wheels and the old west….

If that photo brings back memories, you might also want to go see the new “Lone Ranger” movie – I saw it earlier this week and, despite the mixed reviews, it is very enjoyable.  The second photo was taken inside the station and shows the great collection of old gas pump signs/lights as well as many other artifacts of the early days of automobile travel.  Hope these shots bring back happy memories and thoughts….

How many of these did you or your parents visit?
