Art room sink


I took this inside the same room as this and this.

But what I really wanted to show you was my three-part (so far) series I guess I can call Random Broken Sinks. I found the first one inside another abandoned school building in Garza County, Texas. And the second one is in the unused second floor of a building in Tahoka, Texas.

Rustoleum Metallic, art room


Another shot from inside the art room at the vacated Wellman Union School.

See that can on the desk? It’s Rustoleum Metallic. I am just positive that someone took the spray paint in there with the intentions of painting the filing cabinets. Right?

Home Ec door


After yesterday’s post, I thought I’d go ahead and show another school that’s had better days.

This is one of the buildings at the now-defunct Wellman Union School. The sign on the door says Home Ec, which makes it sound old-timey. Except that around here, people probably still do say “home ec.” Without being ironic.

Caution: school


Another view of the Arney School, which had burnt down just a few weeks before I saw it. Though the school itself had closed decades earlier, the building was in use as a community center.

Which makes me wonder – when a community loses its center, is it still a community?

The money machine: Austin


If you don’t have the $5.95 for a combo meal at this place, this ATM is just around the corner.

But more importantly, why do you suppose that bricked-in window was so low?

Oh, and for those of you keeping score at home, you can add to my list of terms I hate this one: ATM machine.
