This is the old hardware store at the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village near Edmonton, AB. It stocks just about anything you'd need if you were a farmer living on the prairies in the 1920's or 30's. For heating they had a pot-bellied stove. Lots of enamel ware, butter churns, glad irons, and a bolt/nut bin along the back wall. I doubt if there was any plastic back then. :-))
