Field trip - old buildings

p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Field trip - old buildings


Some time ago a friend suggested that Matthews, GA had several old buildings which could be interesting. Although we did not find the old farm buildings he recalled, there are two old buildings adjacent to each other in downtown Matthews.

Both were posted one padlocked, no one was home at the closest house to inquire about entering, and the masonry on the second looked as if it could come down at any time; metal siding and roof covered a shop/work area extending to the rear of the brick structure.

So thought perhaps you might be interested...lots of trucks and other items in close proximity so broad shots not really appealing.

Google Streetview provides an overall perspective.

Thanks for looking,

Bob

One, two, and the last (though it looks a little low contrast) stand out to me Bob!

Places like these always fascinate me. Glad you were able to document them, Bob. And even if permission were granted, that structure in images 1 & 2 looks like it might be a little risky to enter.

Me too Fred,

Curious their purpose at the intersection of two roads, some contemporaneous buildings nearby but on private property, at least set further back from road and with occupied home nearby. And from looking into the first, the roof was mostly collapsed - best stay clear of the interior.

I may see the guy who mentioned Matthews tomorrow and ask more about its history....let you know if I learn more.

Appreciate your commenting,

Bob

Roaming and photographing the olde South is on my "bucket list" Bob. Those roads less travelled and towns of 1 or 2 buildings that still exist....great images!
