This brightly coloured display of vintage gas pumps is at Calgary's Heritage Park.
Heritage Park is an outdoor museum featuring actual buildings from Calgary's past, transported to this site, restored and furnished to their original state.
There's a working paddle steamer and steam train, a land claims office, hospital, one room school house, farm, RCMP post (complete with gaol)...it's a fascinating place to spend a day. Especially at weekends in summer when throughout the day actors in period costume tell the story of a
young couple - each scene set in a different building.
The barn with it's display of the history the motor vehicles in Western Canada is one of my favourite parts of the museum.
It's all those colours!
