Exploring around eastern NC, we visited Whitakers. This building was, unfortunately, representative of the whole commercial strip. The only open establishments were a small grocery, a medical clinic, the post office and a volunteer fire department.

Very old indeed this shop but it must have had a lot of charm because its architecture does not lack interest

Sign of the times. This little charming stores in the center of citys got more and more problems and outside were built up a lot large supermarkets and even the concurrence of the online trading is overcomming up more and more. You´ve taken here a fine capture and time capsual for the future.
