A Little Bit of Bedford
Bedford is an old town just off the Old Lincoln Highway in western Pennsylvania. These photos were taken during a dreary winter day, but because the buildings are so well decorated and inviting, they avoid looking drab.
I've heard it said that we are living with the town planning decisions that were made hundreds of years ago. It is therefore up to us to make wise choices about how we take care of what has been passed on to us.
The Union Hotel. Bedford didn't -- as far as I know -- see any action during the Civil War, but they left no doubt about which side of the Mason-Dixon line they were on.
