Reidsville, NC is home to this old 19th century building from what once was clearly the Reidsville Grocery Company, probably a distributor long ago. 04-08



Hoffman's Grocery
McBee, SC

The old building seen here was located in McBee, SC. The sign overhead said Hoffman's Grocery but the faded letters got bleached out in this picture. I had to check this place out and found cases of old soda bottles, probably from the 1970's, inside as well as some empty boxes of all different products long sold still on the shelves. Hoffman's is defiantly a long forgotten roadside relic. 04-08

Here is John Boy's Country Store, an odd combination of an old style gas station and a modern canopy seen at Walnut Cove. 04-08



R J Reynolds Tobacco
Danville, VA

Danville, VA appears to be a tobacco city with a gigantic ancient complex of Camel and R J Reynolds factory buildings, some of which were beginning to be restored for other uses. The entire area is probably not much changed since the nineteenth century. Here you see the RJ Reynolds smoke stack (Identical to the one in Durham, NC) from this complex . 04-08



Pepsi Bottling
Danville, VA

This old Pepsi Bottling building appears to be what's left of a former large complex. 04-08





Coca-Cola Plant
Wilson, NC

Here is another Coca-Cola bottling plant, this one in the town of Wilson, NC. This was a much large facility, the others being a two story affair yet of a similar style.

Check out the cool ghost sign on this one. 05-08
