Laws VI

Some more pictures from my visit to Laws California.

This and the depot are the two remaining buildings from the original town of Laws.

An on call sleeping room for the agent.

This piece of furniture houses a circa 1860 Murphy bed. Very rare they tell me. 

The one building I saw no need to enter.

This is the Medical Building. Housing a doctor, dentist, ophthalmologist,  a druggist and a barber shop.

The doctor.

The barber. 

The dentist.

The druggist.

Another view. 

The fire department, junior addition.

Some rusty stuff.

The pioneer building seemed to be a collection of odds and ends that didn't fit in other buildings or were surplus. There seems to be another antique reflected in the sign.

A fancy bathtub.

Some old firearms.

Sewing machines.

Musical instruments.

More music makers.

And some I could actually make music come out of.

A bit more rusty stuff.

More rain last night and a great light and sound show put on by the heavens. We also lost power again for an hour plus, maybe the lines around here aren't waterproof.

A one o'clock ballgame will help me to enjoy the good life this afternoon.


  1. So the doctor, dentist, eye doc, druggist and barber were all the same guy, right? Talk about a multi-tasker! :cO

  2. You might want to re-think going into that antique beauty shop. No telling what they might be able to do for you, especially after seeing that reflection! Those old medical things really make you feel a lot better when you have to go to the doctor or dentist now, eh? Well, maybe not "better" better, but you know what I mean. :)

    1. When you've been to a dentist with the old pulley operated drill and seen smoke roll out of your mouth, you have to appreciate the progress that has been made.

  3. The doctor/dentist office looks scary.

    You had one heck of a nice visit to Laws.

    1. I haven't found a doctor/dentist office yet that wasn't scary and the older the scarier.

  4. I bet the Dr., dentist, druggist and barber were all the same person. Now that's scary

    1. I think that's what they call the good old days.
