The Greatest Remedy

Project 52 – Entry #34

We’re back at Black Creek Pioneer village. I shared a number of images from this terrific place before Christmas and I still have a few I want to share with you. Can you image a peddler steering this horse drawn carriage through a village selling his “Greatest Remedy” concoction. Good for both internal and external use….hmmm?

  3. Excellent find, Edith. Love these vintage wagons. Just think, back in the day, you could see that thing coming for miles with that bright color on it. πŸ™‚
    Well done!

    Love it! I can still remember the last two wagons we had that my great grandfather built. Sure wish we still had them.

  7. Oh I love this!! I have a peddler’s cart in my collection too, I got it at a living history village in New Brunswick. Isn’t it amazing to think things were sold this way. Great shot Edith.

  13. Great capture, Edith! Love the way you have brought the details out inside the barn without overdoing the HDR processing – looks very natural.

    • Good question Andy…maybe it did. They weren’t actually selling any there so I like to have my imagination run away with me a little bit. Thanks so much for visiting.
