Today we have a bonus image to share with everyone! Let’s go back to a time where things were a lot simpler, there were no cell phones, VCR’s or even computers… the 1950′s!
This photograph was captured after my very best friend informed me it was sitting in the middle of a very nice community right in town. The day I took this photo it was absolutely pouring with rain. A few minutes after setting up and grabbing a few brackets to process in HDR, I was accosted by my very first “rent-a-cop” who was non too pleased that I was taking photos in this area of town. She informed me I wasn’t allowed to take any photos of the buildings behind her (I had moved down the street a bit from this building by this time)…. I think I hurt her feelings when I turned around and looked at her, um, fiefdom and promptly stated “I have no interest in your boring buildings”.
At any rate, both my friend and I believe this building was originally constructed in the 1940′s-1950′s during wartime. It’s a very odd entity to encounter in this part of town which is filled with old Victorian style homes. Smack dab in the middle of a residential street, you are confronted with this site. There are a few elements to this image that I just love, the green door being the predominant feature here for sure. A little closer scrutiny reveals rust trailing down the bashed and weathered external aluminum siding. I do believe the building is still in active use. We have been able to find no useful information at this time on it, however.
We hope you enjoyed today’s bonus posting, and as always please do feel free to leave a comment!! We love to hear from you.
