Hi all! I'm new here but liked the subject of old buildings, so I thought I'd share one of mine. :-) If the only walls could talk of this old western post office, store and gas station.

Well I've lived here for 50 years so give it another 25 and you'll surely stumble across Darwin by then...:-) Actully it's between Bishop and Death Valley off of Hwy 190 as I recall. Look it up before you go however!

Here is a little PS magic that a friend of mine did that brings the place back to life somewhat.

The first shot is a sliver of history. I bet those walls could tell a lot of stories. The faded sign and the old hand-operated gas pump indicate that this was a combination general store, gas station, and post-office. There were a lot of these in the early 20th century. When I was a boy, I lived about a mile from Putney, SD, a little hole-in-the-wall town. It had a store with the same combination of functions plus an apartment on the second floor.
