Empire Ranch architecture (3 of 8)
Gingham curtains in Empire Ranch historic ranch house

We had to go fill up our 6-gallon water container today so we could add some water to our fresh water tank in the trailer.  At the Empire Ranch Historic Site, there is a potable water source that we can access.  While Jim was filling up the container, I walked around the historic site and in the ranch house taking “architectural” photographs.  I was struck by these gingham curtains at the window in one of the rooms.  The pretty, old-fashioned curtains contrasted against the cracking, peeling plaster walls just begged to be photographed.

As I walk around the old ranch, it almost feels too familiar to me.  Maybe it’s just that it’s so reminiscent of all those western TV shows I watched as a kid.  Or, perhaps in some other life, I was raised and lived on an Arizona cattle ranch – who knows!! 🙂

Loved the simplicity of the siding, window trim and curtains – monochromatic!
