Funny signs in an old gold mining village

Barkerville, a gold-rush town established in the late 1800s, lies around 80km from Quesnel (here in western Canuckistan) by road. It has been restored and is a thriving tourist attraction during the summer. In winter the snows envelope it and the town is officially closed to visitors.
