That was then....this is now....

Love living in a area rich in history….and this shot is one example why. This is Colorado Springs newest brewery and it's a beauty!

Look at the photo of the trains on the wall, then check out the arched window next to it. The restaurant is built in an old railroad roundhouse which was constructed in the 1800's. Apparently the old turntable which you can see a part of in the photo is underneath the parking lot!

It's so awesome to sit in there and imagine those days and what occurred right where you are! Not to mention….the food and beer are great, too :))

If you're a railroad buff….see this very interesting information HERE. [en.wikipedia.org]

What a lovely place. I'd like to be sitting there right now, with a traditional English cream tea! ;-) A nice idea using this kind of sepia effect for such an old, historically interesting building. Nice light too. Nice shot, I'm saying :-)
