Next to the house from yesterday's post are a pair of stores typical of the 19th century. The windows contain items that would have been on sale at the time, such as fine china in the one to the right. It occurs to me that it's been a long, long time since the term dry goods has been used on a store sign.
Turning around, we have another storefront. This one had furniture in the front window... and a close look will see a coffin, with a glass pane allowing viewing of the dead, standing upright in the window. Looming behind it is a grain elevator, a hint of what's beyond this area, and further ahead in time.
Moving beyond into the 20th Century, the visitor comes across this one room classroom, often seen on the Prairies in the early part of the century.
The desks are either mounted with information screens, or hold objects one might have expected to find in these schools at the time.
Aside from the standard map of Canada, the classroom has a wealth of items all within what would have been close quarters on a cold Prairie winter's day.
