The Building
The Rust
The Rusted Relics
 
To find this Relic of a Bike at the back of The Building was a PhotoShoot Delight!
If only Donald could Quack...the stories he could tell. 
 Like why he has a Screw in his Head!

    1. I have heard of Massey Ferguson, but did not make the connection to the building in Melvin, Texas. Thanks for the additional information.

  2. I saw a funny sign at Ellen's blog that said Rust in Peace (in front of an old pickup!)
    I do love old stuff, remnants from the past.

    1. I have seen that 'Rust In Peace' on photos before, too. Kind of says it all, huh?

  4. The Folgers can...the rusted adding machine...all those rusted relics, the debris of someone's business...makes me wonder what it was like when it was prospering. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

    1. I am always amazed that people seem to just walk out of the building and never look back. Guess they didn't figure it was worth adding up their losses or they couldn't afford the adding machine paper. At any rate, I imagine there are locals who could tell the story. I might give it a go one of these days...Rusty Relics Fiction!

  5. Oh how cool! What a great old building. I wants it (to borrow a phrase from the kiddos!) I especially love that old truck. It's beautiful and reminds me of one my daddy had many years ago.

    Have a blessed night!

    1. Thanks Hilary. When the rusty relics become overgrown and deteriorated from the weather, they are even more interesting subjects for a photographer. I always intended to tell some stories about some of these pictures. Maybe one day.
