    Best NOT viewed large - it's blurred. I goofed up - and I wasn't even driving. Or drinking.

    The weather and lighting were turning bad on me so I made this a "scouting trip", taking mental notes and snapshots along the way. This abandoned gas station came with a collapsed fruit stand, auto repair shop and rusty sign pointing to a cafe (I think). Some of it seems on private property. Will need to go back and take a closer look.

      Looks great, and I really like the angle of the photo.

      Great find. You better get back there before it disappears to get the shot you want.

      I grew up near here.
      This little roadside store was called Alison's Fruit Stand. There was a store with a fresh produce stand and gas pumps. I went there many times as a child with my father. He knew the owner.

      Believe it or not , it was once a very nice little place. This road ( GA HWY 13) was once the main thoroughfare to Atlanta and this was a very busy place.

      It is sad to see it in this state. It holds a lot of memories for a lot of folks around here.
      Maybe someone out there might have some photos of it in its glory days and post them.

      By the way, great shots! As are many of your pics here. You have a very good eye.
