American Ickers

Okay, on the count of three, "Ewwwwwwww......"

 

This is another vignette from Clyde Jr.'s property in Pollocksville, NC.

 

Clyde has some pretty serious cleaning up to do. This is a view inside a small out-building that had pancaked almost completely to the ground. Whereas it had once stood proud, the height is now only about four or five feet.

 

I asked Clyde a question that had always been in my mind, "Do buildings like this slowly decay into the ground, or was it a single, quick event?" In this case, the building had deteriorated, but a windstorm provided the final blow (as it were), compressing the space to half-height.

 

As for the title, there's a popular show on television on History Channel called American Pickers, where Frank and Mike travel the back roads of America looking for 'collectors' of mess, haggling over prices so that they can turn the item around and make a few bucks. Mike likes bicycles. Maybe Mike would be interested in these.

 

You can see other images from Clyde's property at Entangled, Reclamation and Clyde's Rides.
