This mural is on the building that once housed the Playfair Preston Company, a Midland general store from 1895 to the 1950s.

I am joining Monday Mural HERE
ooooo that's gotta be itchy!
Small town general stores of years gone by were a shopping experience!
My uncle ran a store very similar to this in Kansas back when I was growing up. I loved to visit there!
A beautifully executed mural recalling a long-lost age.
yikes on the wool underwear, i am wondering if that would be what we called long johns.. you always find fab photos of windows, now you found a fab photo of a painting of windows. i do love this mural.
I definitely laughed about the woolen underwear! Scratchy stuff I'll bet! Love the mural! It's a classic.
A classic mural indeed and superb captures as always, EG!!! I did have to chuckle like Kathy about woolen underwear!! Your posts are always a beautiful way to start my day!! Thank you!! Have a beautiful day!!
Both elements of it look quite realistic!
I love the mural and also the underwear ad! There is a shop building and the original name in a nearby town. I remember it from the late 50's looking a lot inside like your pictures above. Today it's a Chinese supermarket, but the facade is still the same. Good memories from reading your post, Tina. Thanks
Wool underwear. Yikes!
What an attractive mural. I guess I'm getting old because the picture has a comfortable, familiar feel to it.
That is a lovely mural and yes the underwear ad made me laugh too.
Wonderful mural! :)
Love the mural, EG! I haven't dragged out the longjohns yet this winter but I would pass on wool ones.
This is pretty charming, EG.
They are really beautiful! I love them!
Wonderful signs and murals :)
Wishing you a great week,
I bet wool felt pretty good this time of year back in the day! LOL
a very nice mural
Another time remembered
Nice murals. All wool underwear? Renews my appreciation for polar plus.
a flash from the past
capturing an almost forgotten world
Those are beautiful murals depicting days gone by.
Lovely mural full of nostalgia.
All wool underwear sounds a little itchy to me!
This has to be my FAVORITE mural that have been posted since I started following the meme. It appeals to me like an Anne of Avonlea. I would love to have lived in that period of time. The sign is a great one. I love the entire post.
Beautifully depicted murals of earlier times.
Ive only seen scenes like this in movies. How cool this mural commemorates a real place in time. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
