America The Melting Pot

The parts melt, but they sometimes re-crystallize.

This thread (until it drifts off-topic) will feature ethnography imported to America.

Cheers,

You kinda expect to find things 'where they belong'.

I can understand finding a sister facility in San Francisco, where it is a local treasure.

But what the blazes is this one doing in French Lick, Indiana?

Interesting postcards, Ikey. Particularly the last one which is a "now and then". Both images of Leavenworth could now pass for "then". The difference in the makes of the cars is intersting. I wonder what it looks like today. Stephen
