Moving on over

Recycled Building

Right downtown in Black Mountain is one of the remaining gas-station-turned-commercial venture.  The Hour Glass Cleaners have revamped an old gas station pretty effectively.  And also in the parking lot is one of those bank kiosks to get your money (also known as an ATM).

Going to send this to Friday Fences this week HERE., since there's that interesting banister going into the entrance.  You barely notice it, but someone cared enough about people's arms full of clothes that they'd have guidance on the steps.  


  1. It is so good to see a building reused in such a useful way. Let's hope it becomes a successful business.

  2. I noticed the bannister first thing. It is sad seeing structures being neglected and falling down. Nice to see someone using this one and preserving it.

  3. We have two service stations turned into churches near us. Interesting to see how many uses there are for these old buildling.

  4. I did not see the railing until you pointed it out!

  5. Love old buildings like this one! Nice shot
