Abandoned Places - Decatur Wanderings, Part 2

Out of the images pulled from the old drive, I also have photos from a second site we visited on that cold February afternoon - a former filling station. It wasn't much. The neighborhood was sketchy which probably contributed to the demise of this former Raceway gas station (petrol station). With the cold, the locals didn't choose to come see what I was doing, so a few photos were had.

It really wasn't much to see

Even the pumps had been removed

Through the dusty windows, with the help of editing

Glancing into the one accessible bathroom we found where the store valuables were kept - sorta...

Circling the building, I noticed an open door

So I grabbed a quick shot inside before heading back to the truck

I'd already started attracting unwanted attention and decided to grab one last pic before calling it a day. Alabama is relatively safe compared to places I've been, but I got the feeling that this wasn't the place to test my luck.
