Vintage Pepsi and Barber Shop

Vintage plastic sign for Pepsi hanging over the Central Barber Shop, 119 Main Street (U.S. Route 11) in Woodstock, Virginia. Because if there’s one thing I think about while getting my haircut, it’s cracking open a refreshing Pepsi Cola.

House in the Clouds

This two-story house atop the former Moyer carriage and car factory, 1710 N. Salina Street in Syracuse, New York, was built by Harvey Moyer as a gimmick to attract attention to his business. The weathered facade hides the motor that powers the building’s freight elevator. The factory was later owned by the Porter-Cable Machine Company and then the Penfield Manufacturing Company.

Vintage Coca-Cola

Vintage Coca-Cola
Faded Coca-Cola ad on the side of an old building near McFarland Auto Body, 6512 Winchester Avenue (U.S. Route 11) in Inwood, West Virginia. Above the Coke ad I believe it reads “A.M. Shirley & Son Groceries & Meats”.

The Historic Wayside Inn

The Historic Wayside Inn
Sign for the Wayside Inn, 7783 Main Street (U.S. Route 11) in Middletown, Virginia. This establishment first opened in 1797 and was known as Wilkenson’s Tavern. Jacob Larrick bought the inn and renamed it Larrick’s Hotel, after himself. In the early 1900s, a new owner expanded and modernized the hotel and called it the Wayside Inn. Today it’s owned and operated by Becky and George Reeves.
