Willy Nilly Friday 5 No. 83 - Mad Men Addition

click on photos to enlarge
Seeing as how I am totally obsessed with Mad Men right now (on season 6) I am going to feature the American Tobacco Historic District in Durham...which I LOVED!

Lucky Strike! The whole being of Mad Men! (we don't smoke by the way!)


A life size chess game with tobacco leaves, Lucky Strike and the famous bull of Durham!


Is this a Sterling Cooper ad?!

I love Durham...we venture down to Raleigh quite frequently and Durham is about a half hour closer to us but this was our first time to stop...I know we will be back again as there is so much to see and we all just loved the tobacco district!

And that is my 5 this week! I hope you will join in! Post 5 randoms, link back and visit others! Have fun and have a great weekend!! Thanks for visiting! (now I'm off to watch an episode of Mad Men before bed!)

Linking with Cath's Fun Friday Favourites and Nancy's Random 5!



  1. I found this very interesting. Great shots Tanya.

  2. smoking has never been my thing, but this place would be!

  3. enjoyed yet another of your Mad Men too....I have watched all the available series so far...will there be another season...I hope so!

  4. Another place to add to my next NC visit! Looks like fun! Have a great week.

  5. Raliegh/Durham!!! bringing back favorite memories . . thank you - your photos are marvelous.

  6. Hello, I enjoyed your photos of Durham. It looks like a fun place to take photos, I like the chess set and the tower. Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

  7. Wow! Really interesting, Tanya. We have been through there a hundred times and never stopped to see anything. Tobacco may be awful (especially once they started doing those harmful additives) but it's also an important part of American history! Love the chess set!

  8. This place is so interesting and the buildings alone are worth seeing. That chess set is so cool!
    Have a great day and thanks for hosting!

  9. Sounds like a very interesting place to visit. We don't smoke either but I thought that Chess Set was super cool.

  10. What an interesting place and that chess set is unique. Lucky Strike was the name of our bowling alley when I was growing up. I never knew this place existed until you shared it. Thanks!

  11. You had a great week Tanya!
    It's good to get away and do new things!
    One of my best blogging buddies lives in Raleigh - it looks a beautiful city.
    Thank you for hosting.

  12. I hadn't heard of Lucky Strike in a long time. Thanks for the tour.

  13. Always fun to see new sights! Have a wonderful Sunday and thanks for hosting!

  14. I quit a little over 2 years ago... but I do love tobacciana... I think that's how you spell it. So colorful. Thanks for joining in Tanya. xo
