For someone like me, this building represented a Major Find: it was falling down, it was adobe, it was reasonably accessible, it was photogenic, and the sky was that shade of blue that looks particularly dramatic in black and white.
The sign above the doorway offers little in the way of coherent explanation of what might have gone on here, although it appears that Bishop & Jordan took over someone’s Coal Yard. Wood and/or briquettes may have been available. Unless they weren’t.
And that last line – does it say “not” or does it say “No. 1”? I am sure I can’t tell.
