    At least, I think that's a question mark.

      Thanks for adding to group. Better known as "Hobson's old building" taken over and abandoned by strangers. Nice shot...!

      Thanks J! I've revised the title and added a tag. Was it a diner in years past?

      Well it was a number of things. In the 60's/70's they sold TV's...really and in the 50's it was Hobson's Grocery Store. (mom is a wealth of information) At the same time the Grocery Store was operating the upstairs was used as a Lodge Hall for meetings, not drinking they did that at the Honor Bar, in the 80's it was made into a few apartments. Then some people took it over in the 90's, painted the ? mark and all the pretty colors and tried selling books, insence, jewelry...that didn't last long. Now it's a fire trap. Honor history lesson by J. with the help of Mom since the 50's was a tad bit before my time. Pretty cool stuff. Love the pic too.
