Stepping back in time

Across from the Taipei Train Station is an odd looking entrance to a place called Taiwan Storyland (more information here).  We had walked by it a few times, and then had a recommendation to check it out, so we did.  Taiwan Storyland is a replication of what Taiwan looked like in the 1950's-70's.

There were streets with storefronts (think dentist, barbershop, school, clothing stores, tea houses, etc.) and some shops where you could go in and buy things.  My favorite was looking at the posters they had hung all over the brick buildings.

We enjoyed looking around and would recommend it to people interested in Taiwan's past.
