Day 176 – One Left Standing

27 Sep

This is an old historic building on River Road in Louisville, or what is left of it anyway. I wish I could tell you the story behind it but for the life of me I can’t remember. All I can tell you is all that is left is the front of the building and the stairs leading up to it. The roadway was then built around it, oh and it is really frakkin’ cool to look at.

    I can just see you walking through that from door… you’d take a look around and say, “This is the BIGGEST house EVER!”

    Like how you used B&W on this one… you can feel the age.

      LMAO how stupid do you think I am πŸ˜‰

      It really is a cool building and I am glad you appreciated the b&w I thought it looked so much better with that feeling to it.

    i wish that the story behind every fascinating piece of americana was written down somewhere…especially when it comes to things like this. these photos do a great job of invoking mystery and myth.

      There was something posted there and I thought I took a photos of what it said for reference but I didn’t. Maybe when I got back I can get the whole story πŸ™‚

    How does that stand? How is is protected? The windows are intact and it looks to be in decent shape, as opposed to the rest of the building which is in no shape. How odd. Look at the beautiful detail! Okay, I want to know all about it.

      I wish I could tell you lol!! The window panes are there but no glass and the front is still in very good shape I just have no clue what happened to the rest of the building. I will try to figure it out πŸ™‚
