It's all in good fun. Look closely because this is a stuffed version of a man and the scene is staged. Hubby and I found this barn during our fall foliage trip in the mountains of West Virginia. The barn is part of the Sharp's Country Store Complex in Slatyfork, West Virginia.
The general store first opened in 1884 by L.D. Sharp. Today Sharp's Country Store is owned and operated by Tom Shipley. L. D. Sharp was his great grandfather.
This little car sitting out in front of the store with its fake wind-up gear in the back just made me smile. It is a 1940 Bantam Midget. It was made by the American Bantam Car Company of Butler, Pennsylvania.
This particular car was formerly used in the Shrine Circus by the clown Roland Reeves. Top speed is claimed to be 50 mph. From what I saw the day I was there I feel sure it has to be pushed to where they want it to sit. I'll have another find from the Sharp's for next week's Good Fences.
