    Great photo of course, but what's interesting to me is how derelict it was after just 29 years. Now it's 80. Wonder also what's left.

    I'm at the magic age where these numbers keep reminding me 50 years makes a huge difference. We see cars for sale that we wouldn't have walked across the street to look at . . . in 1968. All that water's under the bridge now. We laugh and call the rusty hulks "river bottom cars" and people want crazy prices.

    LOL. Who knew you lived on the wild side. Nice image as well.

    Thanks, Jim. I had the same thought, a very short life for that school. In fact, it had been abandoned a dozen or so years before I photographed it in 1968. The families of Claunch were mostly cattle ranchers, who moved on to more fertile lands in Texas. As to its present state, it appears from recent photos to look not that much different, albeit behind a barbed wire fence now.

    Although there are many lovely images here, this whole thread is in many ways depressing. There is so much waste in America. In other places many of these buildings would still be put to good use. But here we tend to shun the old for the new. Wasteful!
