TURN OF THE CENTURY JUNKYARD

This sign hung next to the ticket window for the old museum in Cripple Creek.  "WE DO NOT WANT CARELESS MEN!"  I'm sure nowdays that would be considered discrimination of some sort.

It looks like a turn of the centry junk yard but it is probably just a collection of items that did not make it to the inside of the museum for public display.

There was pretty much everything imaginable out back EXCEPT for the kitchen sink.  There was, however, an outhouse!

Great photos.... And who would want to employ careless men?  Nothing descriminate there in my opinion!  :-)

Being a safety professional in a previous life just makes me love that sign!

Been to cripple creek a couple of times just driving through.  We never got out of the car.  Always seemed to be hailing when we went through, lol.
