- this is the end…
How long will this building remain? How long until it is demolished, without warning?
- Beside the showroom
Weeds make a home where passersby once peered in to see new cars.
Although they took the padlock with them, the door is still locked.
- Halloween was here
A paper skeleton, a holdover from its use as a Halloween haunted house, looks out the front of the showroom.
A single set of stairs at the front of the showroom lead to offices above.
- Behind the offices
Wooden pallets lean against the rear of the building.
- Power meter
The main power meter looks out through a fogged protective case.
- Behind the service bay
The rear of the service bay is almost identical to the front.
- The service bay
The east end of the service bay, where cars were parked once their oil was changed.
- Former illumination
These lights used to illuminate the parking log at night.
- Break Time
A forgotten basketball hoop on the end of the outbuilding.
- this beginning is the end…
Rust on the wall of the outbuilding behind the service bay.
- there is no power here…
The evening sun reflects off an electrical meter on the side of an outbuilding behind the service bay.
- The old door
The sun peeks from one entrance to the showroom to the other.
- Inside the showroom
The old showroom, shadows and reflections
- Behind the showroom
The evening sun peeks around the front corner of the showroom.
- The service area
The entrance to the service area. The old key dropoff box is still there.
- The old showroom
The old showroom, with offices above. Both are now empty.
- Vicksburg Hospital 8/8
Look at the corbels over the windows, at the detailing on the soffits. We don't bother to build things this way anymore in a small town. Everything is utilitarian—and plastic.
- Vicksburg Hospital 7/8
The rear entrance. Who knows what happiness or desperation passed through these doors over the years?
