3635 days later

At some point in the 3,635 days between these photographs, Crider’s Motel was torn down. Actually, I know exactly when it was torn down, thanks to a random comment on an earlier blog post. Here’s the timeline:

  • I made the original photo on March 9, 2013
  • The place was torn down on November 21, 2016
  • And on February 19, I went back

And for those of you keeping up with things, you’ll be interested to know that the old motel – which was widely known for housing those on staff with President Lyndon B. Johnson when he was in residence on his nearby ranch – was torn down to make way for: a vacant lot.

  1. Well, living in a city where they’re filling vacant lots with hideous and overpriced town houses and apartment buildings, superfluous Starbuckses, or carwashes and gas stations… tearing down unused buildings for vacant lots seems like a good idea.
