  1. Hi Heidi !! Many thanks for updating your photos. A great selection for the theme. I love the old-fashioned fire-engine!! It looks to be very well maintained. Where are those grind-stones from? Was it a flour-mill? Lovely scene where the trains used to stop. I bet that press produced a few litres of wine in it's time!!!

    1. I just noticed one of the grindstones has "HI" written on it. It's a nice picture, both because of the stones and also the ambience of the town in the background. And the train station as well.

  4. Nostalgia pure of the fire engine. It has real character. The stone grinding wheels are interesting and love the grape press. There are not many old stations left, mostly transformed into something else in the meanwhile.
