Colonial Camouflage, Colonial Williamsburg, Williamsburg, Virginia

 



One of the difficulties of operating a living history museum, such as Colonial Williamsburg, in which great effort is made to be historically accurate in your presentation, is how to offer necessary modern amenities.  The first photo shows barrels and a box that appear to be shipping crates.  The other photos show how they camouflage a water fountain and recycle bin.

I like this way to hide the recycle bin - it is a modern thing done in a historicle way...

They are so clever! And your picture is interesting--it is not often that we see photos of the trash cans! Linda

I like the camouflage! Water fountains seem to be a thing of the past...how refreshing to see that Williamsburg still has them!

Whenever I take photographs, I attempt to avoid all trash cans. I wouldn't avoid these barrels. They fit right in with everything else in colonial Williamsburg!
