    It’s KILLING me that the bowling pin is watching TV.

    The handwritten label with the little cut out edges also thrills me. This is always such a nice, elegant touch.

    Is the scene on the wood slab hand painted or does it have a hand tinted photo emblazoned on top of it?

    And what does the little lass spend her coins on?

    i love that you knew it was a viewer tv and considering the town is so small, im thinking he is waiting for the indian sign off screen.
