Relics from the Past in Texas


I found both of these old items in the basements of old buildings in Mckinney Texas. The sign was in the county courthouse. This was the first time I saw a boiler or a sign like that.
-Thanks to Thom I would like to add that the sign was pointing to a restroom and there was another one that said "For Coloreds" about twenty feet away.

  6. I love weathered surfaces. But I'm glad that the attitude behind the WHITES sign is a thing of the past.
