While driving toward Martin’s Auction, I stopped for lunch in Bedford, Pennsylvania. The well-preserved downtown is filled with shops and cafés.

While in town, I found these wonderful postcards, with photos from the 1880s (the original photographs were found and reproduced by the owner of the local Bird’s Nest Farm). The photos show nearby Bedford Springs, which has been a resort since the early nineteenth century.
