Playfair Preston Company #2

 Mural under the sign seen HERE

This is the continuation of the mural I showed you last week.

Funiture

And as you can see, the Playfair Preston Company sold more than just clothing and dry goods.

I am joining Monday Mural HERE

I like this vintage look.

The first one makes such an artistic substitute for a display window. There so much charm in that art. Looks like it belongs to another age, altogether.

The room and furniture in the second one -- so, so elegant. :)

I really do love the vintage nature of these murals. I would love to have lived during at this time because I love the clothing and I think the times were less stressful.
