Provincetown Package Store

The term “package” derives from the fact that following the repeal of Prohibition in 1933, a political compromise was reached with leaders of the temperance movement whereby containers of alcoholic beverages could not legally be carried in public uncovered from view. Thus, stores that sold alcohol for consumption elsewhere wrapped or “packaged” them for their customers’ convenience.

Jim Thorpe Oddities

I never tire of Jim Thorpe, except when I encounter the hordes of leaf-peepers in the Fall and can’t find a parking place under ten dollars. The town seems to have everything. You can walk the “commercial section” in less than an hour at a reasonably leisurely pace, but there is so much to see that an hour won’t be nearly enough. Eclectic shops, history, railroads, art, good food, wonderful hiking trails just outside of town.

And, as this set of images indicates, some wonderful oddities!
