Junk at Tortilla Flat

All around the area at Tortilla Flat AZ, there were a number of items that appeared to be pretty junkie - rubbish if you will for Roan's Rubbish on a Tuesday.  And in participation with Josie 2 Shoes, I am about done with the pictures from this fun spot in the road.  All of you will be dancing to know that this is the end of it!



This old wagon has definitely seen it's better day!  And it's full of an array of junk as well.



This old stagecoach with the fake horses was interesting.  And note that there is a museum behind it with a very tentative cupola.  The fence is pretty well shot as well.  Not sure they even try to maintain any of this.  Kind of goes with the decor.



I found this between the restaurant and the mercantile.  How many items can you identify in this picture?

Thanks for hosting the memes ladies!

Marie said...

Wow! Very interesting...like a back-lot western movie graveyard of no longer needed STUFF! :-) Like I said, I really want to check out Tortilla Flat and the Old Dutchman mine when I get a chance. Looks so intertesting!

Hi Linda Kay, The vintage "junk" is very interesting. I actually am intrigued by all vintage things. Antique dealing is in my past.

I am trying to send you my address but couldn't get your email on your home page to go through. Help.
xo,
Jeanne

That first wagon is a bit of a 'fixer upper'.

Great old stuff! Tom The Backroads Traveller

William Kendall said...

It does look like the sort of thing you'd see in a John Ford film backlot.

Judy said...

I love the horses and the stagecoach!!! So many great things to see! I could spend hours there, capturing it!!

Bethany Carson said...

Very neat photos! I don't think I'd like to have the job of fixing up that wagon, but hey, if the wagon were fixed it would probably lose most of it's value as an antique! It looks neat how it is. From the last photo I can spot a milk jug and old wheels, but beyond that I'm pretty clueless.

The fake horses are lovely.

whiteangel said...

Gosh. I am definitely not into junk.

Tabor said...

At least in ARizona these "antiques" can be seen. In the Mid-Atlantic they get covered in weeds and moss within a year and then begin to fall apart.

Tabor said...

Oh, finally got around to adding you to my blog roll!!!

Roan said...

That wagon is my favorite and other than the milk container, not sure I can identify anything. Great post!

Lin Floyd said...

I see a hay rake. Fell off one once when I was a kid and split my lip. Naturally I would remember that thing!!

Cranberry Morning said...

What an interesting name and place! Love that first photo especially.

Jim said...

You did good here, L.K. We had similar old stuff like that in the groves at the farm.
Now my office and the garage are looking like this. Just saying, I would do good at the Rubbish meme.

Great looking junky shots, I love the second one in particular.

oldegg said...

I loved the feel of the photographs. One persons junk is another persons memories.

Amy at love made my home said...

It is definitely a varied collection! xx

The Yum List said...

Funny how what we used to consider junk has now become museum artefact. :-)

Janie Junebug said...

I don't think I can identify anything from that pile. I love the fake horses. They look kind of folk arty.

Love,
Janie

My goodness, these photos look right out of the "Old West" Very interesting. I "see" tumbleweeds and "hear" saloon doors slamming.

Rory Bore said...

Oh it's so fantastic a setting to photograph!! all very interesting and full of character -- so much history in each piece. I love places like this and you've captured them beautifully.
Love the horses. ha

Michelle F said...

My favorite is the old stagecoach with the fake horses.

Sure is an interesting place.

Mascha said...

Wow, such old stuff! Pretty fake-horses... and the picture in the middle is especially nice with the shadows, I mean...
