These former shops were in a small central Washington town. We approached this place so quickly, I was able to get one quick drive-by shot. The strange row of shops appeared closed - a thing of the past.
Looks like it could be part of a movie set...and, I notice, you always find the coffee-houses, don! A good capture, full of life and light. stars for this one. :OD

Fascinating place, nice shot Don

A town straight out those old B/w cowboy b movies I used to watch so avidly!

Reminds you of one of those Hollywood film sets where they build the fronts and nothing else.

I agree with Curly, this looks like a bolt on movie set! Well seen and captured Don! ;-)

Attrayant, fait une belle déco !...

Extraordinary place , like in an old movie ! Superb photo !
11 Jan 2012 2:23pm
it is unique. not sure if it would draw me in to shop there, though. i guess maybe it didn't work well...
11 Jan 2012 2:51pm
Great shot ! It's a shame this place died.

At first I thought I was looking at an HDR rendition ... but see that it isn't ... good drive-by shot, Don!
11 Jan 2012 3:32pm
Good title for this image.

Nostalgic look out
Beautiful old american atmosphere!
A unique place..

A beautiful drive by shot. Someone's dream; a nice title. Wonderful presentation. Love it. :)

Well framed for a quick drive-by, Don. The windmill strategically anchors the row, and the curb provides the path to follow through the frame.

I would have wanted to stop...but then we would never get anywhere if we stopped every time we saw something to photograph.

Beautifuly seen, captured and presented Don!
The atmosphere is very attractive, well done.
11 Jan 2012 5:38pm
cool ... looks like a museum of some kind, or the stalls at a fair ...
11 Jan 2012 7:05pm
Wow truly from another time. Wonder what it used to be?
11 Jan 2012 10:04pm
A charming and interesting set of buildings...great find and capture!
11 Jan 2012 10:08pm
Totally amazing and heavy with atmosphere. A great drive-by capture, Don.
11 Jan 2012 10:24pm
Nice drive-by capture, and what a curious place. Looks like it might have been a fun place or maybe will be come summer.

looks like one of those hollywood movie sets with all facades.
12 Jan 2012 1:54am
A drive-by shooting! :) Very quaint - love it.
12 Jan 2012 3:38am
We have some similar western facades out here in touristy places. I suppose it's another victim of the economy.
14 Jan 2012 9:07pm
I guess the Old West feel just wasn't there.
15 Jan 2012 4:22am
a shop's fake facade perhaps? it's still an interesting shot.. :)
