Today’s Top 5

Not a tallboy

That's a lowboy with a mirror, not a tallboy.

Glamping

Today we call this 'glamping'. I guess luxury camping isn't so new after all.

The pinup on the far right

Hanging from the dark part of the tent roof. Would be an interesting blowup.

Pretty racy stuff

Armless statue porn.

My God Shall Supply All My Needs

And if that's not enough, there's always the Victorian pinups hung up everywhere.

Faith Based

After seeing the posted signs in this tent, I would say that this might have been either an Evangelical meeting place or a religious retreat.

[One of the pinup-friendly denominations? -Dave]

Or maybe they lapsed.
