Hanging Pails All in a Row

Metal Pails

Metal Pails

Don’t throw out the old bucket until you know the new one holds water. ~~ Swedish proverb.

These buckets are hanging in the Old General Store at Old World Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Historical Society’s re-creation of Midwestern living in the mid- to late-1800s. An interesting place to visit, but I don’t think I want to live there.

    Un très beau cliché !

    This is charming. I love the nostalgic mood of this. Very nice.

    I really like photos like this. Anything hanging from the rafters always intrigues me. Very nice capture and composition of the shiny metal pails. I’d definitely would love to visit this place. 🙂

    Those Swedes had some very sound advice. You definitely wouldn’t want to trust a leaky bucket to beer. Better safe than sorry.
