You Capture - Old Signs

Thursday, September 3

Doh! I just finished my whole post and blogger failed to save! You'll probably thank me this time as there will be less commentary. Here's an old place I found while camping last weekend with my family at Alder Lake, WA. (Those photos coming soon.)
These next two will look very familiar if you happen to live in St. John's, an old neighborhood in north Portland. Here is the
McMenamin's Pub where you can have dinner and drinks while seeing a $3 movie. Yea!
This next one is my favorite. What looks like an old gas station at night is really a pizza & ice cream diner. Yummy!

Go here to visit
I Should Be Folding Laundry to see more Old Sign photos.
