VACATION TID BIT #3

The town of Davis is a very small, old mountain town. On the main street going through the town, the buildings are very old and consist of restaurants, bed and breakfast, and other tourist attractions. There is one old building that I just had to take a photo of. The building contains the Davis Post Office and The National Bank of Davis, as well as housing other businesses.


What is so interesting about this building, is the side view.


Do you see that tree growing out of the chimney? I wasn't the first to notice it, but John brought it to my attention. Obviously the chimney is no longer used....but, I wonder why the are leaving the tree growing there? You'd think that the roots would eventually cause the stones to break apart, or maybe the roots are just growing straight down the chimney.

that is neat. Maybe no one has noticed it, just like you didn't until John pointed it out.

That is too funny. You are right..how strange that they would leave it.
Neat looking building though. Looks like a cute place to visit.

Now I'm curious about that tree and how long it has been there and how long it will stay.

I love old towns like that!

That is weird about the tree. And kind of funny too. I bet you're right though, it'll bust the bricks eventually!

That tree growing out of the chimney is too funny! Lovely old building...I adore old buildings, too. They make great photos. By the way, I haven't visited you in a while. I will try not to be such a stranger in the future!
