Fences on Friday

One of my dear readers sent me these photos of a fence she spotted while on a trip out west.

The family set out to celebrate the patriarch’s birthday with a two week journey through Wyoming and South Dakota.  She told me that the population here at the turn of the century (during the gold rush) was more than 7000 and now is only a bit over 300.

Thus the volume of old mining tools looking for a new life is immense.

This shopkeeper came up with a clever way to display his old tools…

I expect creating it was kind of like putting together a puzzle…
