May 16, 2014 - Part 19

These awards were scattered about the buildings around town that had been lovingly and authentically restored.

The brown colored emblem was proof of fire insurance for the building to which it was attached.  This ensured the building would receive preferential treatment in the event of a fire.

Another type of fire insurance emblem.

This is either a door knocker or a piece of art; I'm not sure which.

This is an interesting bit of art and history...these are decorative bolts that were used to shore up the building to which they were attached after an earthquake in the 1800s.  There were different types of bolts on lots of the buildings around town, but most of them weren't this attractive.  :)

Jed found a horse he wasn't afraid to pet.  :)
