Curiosities

 Exotic Animal Wagon

On the edge of a farm northwest of Toronto, someone has a collection of curiosities for all passersby to see.  The exotic animal inside the wagon is a kid's stuffed animal - a tiger.

At the foot of the driveway

Both the phone booth and Coke machine are empty but I think the booth may be used as a school bus shelter.

The wagon is an amazing, fascinating style. And strange to see a booth and Coke machine together.

No coke at this stop, that is unless there's a plug in the booth. :-)

Now those are really curious things to see. Phone booths are getting rarer but the wagon is really rare. Great finds!

That is really fun! The old circus wagon is a beauty! But I wonder how many folk stop and try to buy a coke?!!!

I just love seeing sights like this! Hmmm, I should dig out my 'alien in a phone booth' shot!

And here I was thinking you could sip your coke while making your phone call.

Gosh as soon as I saw the old wagon my imagination went wild :) and it looks like it's true, you can find coke anywhere you are. Made me smile EG :)

I love that old wagon! A kid's stuffed animal being in there is much better than a real tiger ever was.

Shammickite said...

There was an animal wagon like that for sale at the end of a driveway along Hwy 9 a couple of years ago, I wonder if it's the same one!

Jack said...

If that is a bus shelter, it is the smallest one I have seen.

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

They are curious! What fun!

Stephanie said...

Fun images!

What a great find. What a school bus shelter. Better than being out in the wind I guess.

Jeevan said...

The animal wagon and phone booth looks cool! It will be fun to have such cute little shelter for kids :)

Interesting post

Those phone booths are a thing of the past, aren't they? Hard to believe. Love the Old wagon.
