Stepping Back in Time

I often drive by Heritage Park Historical Village but have never taken the time to visit until this past weekend. We decided to spend an afternoon exploring Gasoline Alley museum in the village. We had a great time seeing the various antiques on display. It was a great history lesson!

We also walked through the Cars of the Big and Small Screen exhibit that’s currently on display at the museum. The exhibit features cars that have become famous from their Hollywood roles.

And check out my vintage photos!

My kind of truck!
Right out of 1916.

I learned that this is called a rumble seat. Ladies had to climb in and out of this seat while wearing a long dress and also not showing  their ankles.
