We live fairly close to the small town of Havana, an antique haven for those who like browsing old furniture. There are many old buildings and homes…makes you feel like you’ve gone back in time a bit.
Many of the brick buildings are decorated with life size artwork. This Bear is dressed as a police officer and waves to the passing cars. I ought to have had my photo taken with it so you could see how large it is.
This one is, appropriately, outside the small newspaper office on the corner. He looks real from a distance and stands roughly 6 feet tall.
Here is a close up shot and one taken from across the street. You may want to see what this vendor has to offer but it’s only a painted wooden display.
The local businesses had their signs up as decoration and advertisement.
