An elegant detail in Ghost Town was recently restored! When the sun goes down, take a look at the little window on the side of the Calico Saloon. You can see it from Stage Road.
Inside of the window is an animated silhouette of a couple kissing illuminated by flickering candlelight!
Here is a short video that I shot of the kissing couple:
Many thanks to Christopher Merritt, author of “Knott’s Preserved” for the next two photos!
This photo was taken from Market Street in Ghost Town in the early 1950s. If you look down the street you will see Stage Road running perpendicular and the very same window on the side of the Calico Saloon:
This is a close-up of the same photo, and you can see the kissing couple in the window! This couple has been around since at least the 1950s!
Enjoy as always!
