A Charlottesville Tradition

Day 2 of our Virginia Vacation, we stayed in Charlottesville. We first went to the Downtown Pedestrian Mall. It was too hot to eat on the plaza, so we were delighted when we saw that Timberlake's Drug Store "since 1890" had a soda fountain and deli. We recreated our younger days in a by-gone era.

I have tried twice to use this Graphic 45 paper in soda fountain layouts, but it just didn't match my photos. So here's my post script!

Neither Bob nor I had strong photos from inside the store, so I added a photo shop filter (Fresco) to the larger photo to provide some contrast and accents.
