While passing through Gettysburg, PA along Route 30 we stopped for a break in the downtown area which was hosting an antiques fair.  We made several small purchases including a 1925 edition of the Pennsylvania Grange Cookbook.

Just west of Gettysburg I took notice of old Ford vehicles lined up beside a garage in front of a large American flag.  Right away I stopped, turned around, and went back to get these shots.

Our next stop along Route 30 was at Mr. Ed's Elephant Museum and Candy Shop near Orrtanna, PA.  Over the year's this is one of the places that we stop at on our way home from York, PA.
