A close up of the x-ray machine from yesterday’s post.

For those of you who were wondering, I did some research on Thermax, and it currently has a lot of references that deal with “Pune-based industrial energy solutions provider Thermax.” (I first read that as “prune-based industrial energy solutions, which made for a fanciful few seconds. Welcome to my mind.) Anyway, the only thing close that I found was a reference to a 1974 x-ray machine in a British medical journal.

So there you are.

X-ray vision

I first photographed this building back in 2013, and I posted shots of a very messy room and of an abandoned refrigerator. But I didn’t go inside.

Now, though, I’m bolder than I was five years ago, and on a return visit to Colorado City I just walked right on in. And found this treasure in a back room.

Well, sure, the sign SAYS “reclaim” but my feeling is that the place may be past that option.

Indoor plants


It’s just never a good sign when weeds are growing up through cracks in the concrete floor on the INSIDE of a building.

The back of this building is completely gone, and the front may as well be. But there’s a metal structure covering (what’s left of) the building. Someone thinks it’s worth saving, and I wish them all the luck. In the meantime, though, those weeds just keep on sprouting.

Not at all helpful, 2


Continuing with the theme from yesterday, here’s another sign that is not especially useful. But at least it’s lit at night.

Wait – actually, it’s NOT lit at night: that light’s too low to help the sign out. Disregard.

Here’s a pair of signs that are just as helpful, over on the blog Objects Gross & the Unseen Soul.
