Once a Nice Home

Finally turning off the interstate on our second day of driving (yes, it takes two days to drive the length of California) I took historic Route 66 towards our destination and soon found this neat old home.  It's hard but I try to imagine how places like these were 50, 60, or more years ago.  
So sad that idiots destroy these abandoned homes. 

 Inside it was so thoroughly trashed that nothing was worth taking a photo of.

Only the fireplace barely escaped destruction.  It was really dark in this room and I didn't hold the camera steady enough.  I should have raised the flash.

Gee, looking at this picture I thought there were Christmas light ice cycles hanging from the eave.  
I zoomed in and saw it was the sunlight coming through the boards of the roof.


  1. Haunting, yet hopeful with those final "lights" you saw at the end

  2. That would have been a nice old house once, now it's a shadow if it's former self, here in the UK it would have collapsed by now due to damp

  3. Idiots are idiots the whole world over, similar mindless destruction takes place over here.

  4. Oh, I'd like to restore this one!

  5. It looks like a pretty home once. Sad some idiots can't keep their hands off.

  6. I never understand why people trash these homesteads.

  7. It looks like it was a nice little home at one time...they fall apart quick enough on their own. I don't understand that need for destruction.

  8. I think I'd be a bit nervous around there.
