Theme Day...My corner local shop


I am not officially on Theme Day this month but this is the local bar in the town next to Inverness (Inverness has no industry unless you count the golf course!). This building has been in Palatine for a very long time. Enjoy theme day here!

  31. Must get a bit of winter snow in this area, judging by the significant pitch of the metal roof. Perfect for your "non" theme day contribution :)
