Exploring the back roads of Alberta.
Interesting. Drives in the country should be safe, as long as you clean your hands well after pumping gas.
Agreed! I have heard that some gas stations aren't even letting people in, only pay at the pump.
One of the ones I go only has a counter behind a glass window.
Full of junk and may be haunted? Me too!
HAHAHA I genuinely lol'ed, thanks Debra!!
...what a find, a beautiful building with wonderful signs and a GORGEOUS image. I would like to link this post to Signs2.
Hi Tom, thank you and yes link away!
Did you go in? I once went inside an abandoned asylum. It was "crazy", but so exciting!
Hi Iris, no I don't go into these place, maybe peek in the windows. I bet an old asylum would be intense!!
Haunted or not I can well imagine the ghosts of the old-timers gathered in front of the hardware store. Another wonderful image.
Thanks John, I picture the old counter with jars on shelves and can almost see it!!
I am healthy, but thank you that you are interested in fortune, I wish you health.
Thank you Agnes, take care!
I love that it might be haunted!!!
Hi Rain, I have heard stories from more than one person!!
It would be fun to go inside and sort through the junk. Maybe there are some real treasures to be found.
I bet there would be!! I have heard the owner isn't very receptive to anything to do with this place.
The mercantile building is the big white building with the "stepped" roof on the far right hand side of the photo. It is a huge old building!
Hi Michael, yes it's a big building! It must have been quite the general store!!
The O!d Mercantile has faired well over the years Jenn and yes I spotted it there. Hopefully if everyone does the right thing we can beat this virus sooner rather than later ✨
Thanks Grace! I agree, I hope people are staying home. Take care!
It does look like the sort of place to attract ghosts.
I agree! I think I heard there's a dance floor upstairs, maybe there is ghost parties.
Scary I also womt go and see inside
I love the old pics you included in the post!
Thanks! I always try to find an old photo of the places I see.
What a grand looking building. It hasn't changed much from the old days.Be safe and healthy, Jenn!
Thanks Bill, you too!
The thought of ghosts is fascinating to me. Love the photos for comparison.
Me too! Maybe I will catch one in my next photo.
I'd love to check this place out!
Hi Tanya, It's so cool in person, even if it's all boarded up.
we are staying home, we are happy and healthy!! have i ever told you how much i LOVE your header picture!!!!
I actually lived here, miss the place dearly.
