Rusty Americana

This is a scene from an abandoned gas station along a rural road in Southern Virginia. At one time, this gas station serviced the community and the many travelers along the east coast of the United States. Once the Interstate appeared parallel to this gas station, services situated along this highway shuttered, including this gas station that offered groceries, too.
