Thanks, Ted. Here are a few more.

This first one shows one of the only good points about earthquakes - they can uncover some great time capsules! Here is one of the many great walls that was uncovered as other buildings were demolished. (Central Christchurch, New Zealand.)


I love the colours of this one! (Dunedin, NZ)


How about this for a Walthers Red Wing Flour Mill kitbash? (Temuka, NZ)


I though about writing to Bob Van Gelder from South River Modelworks about this one. I thought it would make a great kit offering! (Timaru, NZ)


It has a large retaining wall supporting a small no exit road behind servicing the back of the complex. It would be perfect for building on a steep hill. Here is the back entrance. I love the combination of modern and old. This structure oozes character such as this.


Cheers, Mark.

PS - have been really enjoying this thread.

Mark, Really great structures!...I love this type of
vintage architecture. I also agree with you. The old and the new together are unique indeed....
Thanks for posting...

Here are a couple of shots of the bank building in Collins, GA. It's very unusual to find a stone clad building here in South Georgia. Collins is on the Georgia Central (former Macon Dublin & Savannah) and was the end of line for the Collins & Ludowici RR (former Georgia Coast & Piedmont).





Detail of sign:

Ted,

It is indeed empty these days. Its last use was as the "Depot Sandwich Shop!"

Regards,
Wallace

Wallace it appears to be a sign of the times. Everywhere I go these days i see more and more empty buildings....Especially on the main streets
in so many towns...very sad....

This looks a very interesting structure to build. A 102 year old 7th Ave South, icon, in Greenwich Village, NYC.

A small barn in Bangor, PA.

Unfortunately, the sun was right in my lens.

Don't see many nail holes Bruce.

Nice store Ted. Wonder which photo is newer? The top one with the Imus/FOX sign?

For some reason Dave, I think it is the second one as they are rebuilding the subway entrance/exit.

But, looks like newer lights over the entrance, so I think the first picture is newer.
