Historic Rugby -- Print Shop and Beyond


Rugby's working print shop is a re-creation of the original.
 

I'm sorry to say I neglected to get photos of the nifty old presses. . .  

I really love the paraphernalia that goes with old time printing. 

Here are some of the homes of Rugby.
 

There are lots for sale and new houses are built but within the historic area, they must conform to the Victorian look.
 

Tomorrow we'll visit the grave yard . . .

I love the porches! Some of my fondest childhood memories are the times spent on my grandparent's porch!

Wow, Rugby is really a beautiful town. I've been looking back through your photos of it, I think I would love living there.

Thank you for sharing. That was a 'Period' rabbit? Does he know how good he looks with beautiful Rugby? Of course he does.

I remember the print room. Just so interesting. The houses there are so beautiful. It reminded me of home when I went there with L and made me feel homesick.

What an interesting historic town. I love the library with all the old books. I had never heard of it so I really enjoyed your visit. I also enjoyed looking at all your flowers – you have some very good pictures.
