Sprague is a small village almost a ghost town in Lincoln County, Washington state.  What a surprise to find this little paradise for photographers and old cars and trucks enthusiasts! πŸ™‚

Those old-timer vehicles, so colorful looked and somehow similar, looked to me a little like a part of a “Coterie” of trucks πŸ™‚

Lucky that we thought to stop there! I would have spent days and days to photograph all these jewels, but we only had about one hour to spare. I took quite a few of images though, and uploaded some to my Fine Art America gallery. Those with caption are available as art prints of all kind. Just click on them to see the options!

Again, I often like to think about funny ideas when I photograph. This one for instance, looked to me like a meeting of a clan with the leader in front, so I called it accordingly πŸ™‚

I particularly liked this row of four yellow trucks. It looks like the owner of this place cared about esthetics:

Of course the old trucks in Sprague Washington where the main reason for making this post. However, is more to say and show about this old West American community dating back to 1883 when it was officially incorporated.

Whether you are a photographer, or just an explorer, it is worth to take a walk around this nostalgic western small almost ghost town in Washington State of the USA. Just take a look at the Mary Queen of Heaven Catholic Church for example, which is a piece of historic architectural jewel. The old wooden train station will perhaps attract our interest too, as it did to me πŸ™‚

Here is another instance of the same street with the church and train station. The BNFS freight train was just passing by…

As you may  know already, I’m a traveler and not particularly a car photographer. However, this antique farm equipment display I found in Spargue, was a real goldmine πŸ™‚

So, what else did I find here,… let’s see:

Oh look at this weathered sign of “The Prague TAVERN”, with the perspective of the main street! Of course the establishment itself closed its door for a while.

But I found another nostalgic piece of jewelry! Just look at his barber sign and mural on an old brick wall πŸ™‚ It says: “Cremo Cigar, Barber Shop and BATHS, Straight Shape” – All hot headlines for that time in this Western small village πŸ™‚
