Friday Smiles 275: the final leg of the Kansas Oil Museum

I'm once again foregoing the jokes, etc. this Friday.  I'm sure you are aware I'm here for Annie's Friday Smiles.  And I think I'm a week off, and this should be #276.  My mistake!

I wanted to save the jokes for another day, because this is the final week I am showing the Kansas Oil Museum.

As promised, this is where we left off last time (two weeks ago).

I'm not completely sure these signs actually provide any reference

to what we were about to see inside this building.

Let's step inside and hopefully these next photos will put a smile on your face as they did mine.

I'll let you peruse these photos at your leisure and I will once again look over photos of the old vehicles and accessories that are on display.

I wanted to get photos of the other walls, but that was when my camera batteries died.  I had taken over 1000 photos that day.

Thanks for joining me today and thanks for your continued visits.  Now let's visit Annie's Friday Smiles, where it never hurts to begin the weekend with a big smile, just like Annie's. Feel free to join in with a post of your own, too.

Those old cars are fantastic, and they all look almost like new. They have a great collection at the museum. Happy Friday, Valerie

Since I forgot to mention this yesterday, thanks for linking me up for T stands for Tuesday the other day. And I enjoyed the photos of the antiques. Its fun to see how styles change and advance, but in a way it is a fun to think about what it was like back in the day. :) Hope you have a fantastic Friday. hugs-Erika

This is an amazing place Elizabeth but you are spending so much time there I am wondering hoe Bleubeard feels about it as I am sure you don't take him with you. Thank you so much for sharing these brilliant photographs with us. Angela xXx

Antique cars. Beauty as well as functions. I like the Schuster Torpedo Co. truck. Have a Happy Friday!

You find the coolest places to visit-loved this one too
to answer I had changed to the pop up for a bit when I was getting comments on tuesday and didn't seem to help things-and then with that set up I wasn't able to reply back under comments-I did try the commenting first-and just a couple went into the email but not all of them-that's why I decided to stop aggravating myself-lol
Happy Friday Smiles Kathy

Great old cars, what a fabulous museum! On another subject and referring to your comment on my latest blog effort - I would love to send you some of my skeleton leaves (as I mentioned my collection never seems to get any less), so to find a home for some of them would be good! Just need to know where! Shall we exchange email addresses? Warm wishes. Kay

Jeanie said...

This is one of those places I never would have thought to visit yet all your posts here have been just fascinating. This might be my favorite as I love the old vehicles. It looks very well done.

Looks like a fabulous museum! I loved seeing all the old metal signs and vintage cars 😁. Thanks for the tour and wishing you a Happy Friday and Weekend! J 😊 x

Wow, I love these old cars and the Model T ford would have to be my favourite.
I also had a grin at the red flag on the one carrying the explosives as if the flag would be of any use if they did explode.
It has been great seeing your photos from this museum.

You go to great places around here. I have lived here off and on most of my life and haven’t been to several places you have showcased!
Have a great weekend!

You've beaten me with 1000 photos in one day Elizabeth!! Loved seeing the old cars, weren't they just beautiful pieces o, f art? And the petrol pumps, so sweet.
Have a great weekend.

Hello my friend. Yes I was on holiday up in Scotland spending some time meeting up with Elizabeth (Worthington) and her lovely hubby so was unable to post on my blog but trust me when I say we were sharing lots of smiles and I may share a few of them next week with you.
I’m pleased to see my absence didn’t stop you sharing your smiles. I love the pics from the museum you’ve shared this week.

Great photos. I enjoy seeing old vehicles and equipment - some of which I remember. Memories of simpler times.
