GREAT pics Dave! I especially like the old Pure sign and the backwoods store. Keep 'em coming!

Southland distributor in east central MS. I guess the top sign is the new logo.

Old sharecropper's shack in the MS Delta. As the saying the more things change, the more they stay the same goes, the current generation lives in ragged out trailers instead of shotgun shacks.

Truth or Consequences NM. Contrived, I know, but when I saw it, I had to stop and shoot.

This guy is probably like the rest of us; just loves this stuff and to display it and share with others. He just took a different approach-minimal and unpretentious-which blends in well with the geographic elements of the desert. I like it!

Contrived display or not, those are beautiful pics!

Here's a small "domestic style" station located in my hometown. There was article in the local paper a few years ago about a preservationist group trying to save it from demolition. Looks like they must have succeeded, because it's still there!

Great pictures, guys! Keep it up!

We ran across this neat old general store today, abandoned in a tiny town.



Wayne 615 has been taken apart for an amateur restoration, as half of the cyl rods are missing...
