Taken on U.S. Route 271 in Arthur City not far from Paris, Texas. I had just passed over the border from Oklahoma into Texas when I found this beauty. I would imagine the passing from one state to another used to mean more as this place seemed to have fallen on bad times. Seeing as I had experienced the joys of the dry county in Oklahoma I was kinda glad to be back in Texas! Here is a street view of the garage and the area.

Hey, hey
It was the fourteenth day of April
Well they closed it down
With the sails in rags
And the swept up the fags
And the local rags
Threw the plastic cups
In the plastic bags
And the cooks cleaned the kitchen
With the staggers and the jags
Ruination day
And the sky was red
I went back to work
And back to bed
And the iceberg broke
And the Okies fled
And the Great Emancipator
Took a bullet in the back of the head...

Listening to:"April The 14th (Part 1)" (Time - The Revelator) - Gillian Welch
