Time Capsule

.







If one day your route takes you North on Hwy 93 from Las Vegas to Wendover you will pass through a town called McGill. Copper mining brought riches and placed McGill on the map in the beginning of the last century. Sadly though today it is a shadow of its former self and its tired buildings stand as a fading reminder of its former glory. Undeterred though by McGills misfortune, the Drugstore continues business regardless. In 1979 owner Daniel Breaddock decided to stay put rather than pack up and leave, today his store is a veritable museum of a bygone age with shelves stocked with products sold since 1915. Whats more it's the only place where there still exists a soda fountain...



























David & Juanra:...McGill will be on our way this summer

Wow. Amazing. I think I've been up that road, but I was on a very fast bike, with some fast friends. I should slow down and look around. G
