Some signs from the TH&B
at Jerseyville Railway Station.
Built in 1896 it was the first building to be moved to Westfield Historical Village
and was used in both the movie Anne of Green Gables and the tv series Road to Avonlea
where it stood in for Bright River
Interesting signs. I am thinking that until the 1930s people did not 'return' from those destinations.
Lovely sign finds!
Pretty expensive fares when you think about it! Nice finds.
Beautiful finds. Thanks for sharing.
I'm glad it wasn't me who had to set the clock beck then. I would have gotten distracted and gotten it wrong. I think I would have waited until it was 10 minutes late. Less confusion that way.
I would have loved to travel by train back then. What sights there must have been to see.
I will be on time for work with the clock...beat it in two seconds!
Fine set of signages.
the "10 seconds slow" made me smile.:p i wish all the clocks are 10 seconds slow. marvelous series.
Very nice signs. I like having a look into the past. :)
I have never been to Westfield Historical Village!
Looks like a cools place. But 10 seconds SLOW? Seriously? People cared about that?
What a great look at history.
So why not advance the clock by 10 seconds? Cool signs!!
Great post. And I loved Anne of Green Gables (the books)...don't remember the movie.
