Laskey Emporium

Project 52 Entry #31

We’re back at Black Creek Village. In my last post we visited the The Saddler & Harness Maker which you can see here if you missed it. Today we pay a visit to Laskey Emporium, a general store in the traditional sense.

Here you can pick up dry goods, toys for the little ones or textiles to make a pretty dress…the Walmarts of its day. As I was standing inside the store I was just imagining how simple it must have been back then. Shopping for gifts must have been easy…..

  15. Nice work. Honestly, you make boring object so interesting. Never thought about taking a picture of a store. I guess it’s because HDR. Without HDR, I guess it is probably really plain.

    Happy New Year!
