sanderson, texas. 2010. the last evening that this facade was photographed. we drove into sanderson just so i could see this little building again. i drive through this area whenever possible, as it seldom changes except for some fresh paint or a washing from a rogue west texas storm. this evening happened to be different, as i soon found that the building, the bar next door, and the small quarters in the back were all being razed to make way for progress from the baptist church next door. 100 years of history. seems as though i might have been the last person to photograph this building. so i’m guessing that my series on this property is complete.

  1. Damnit ! Decades ago, I shot pool at Primo’s Pool Hall,bought beer in his beer joint,got my hair cut in the barber shop and purchased groceries at the store on the east end of this building. Why the hell do a few double-minded Southern Baptists in Cook’s former Meat joint have to tear it down. They don’t NEED the space for Jesus. Somebody got it in their head that there was more money to be made on the east side of their 501(c)3 NON-PROFIT CORPORATION;S OFFICE. Sooner or later, the whole god-damned town will be removed(destroyed) by these enterlopers who have only lived here for three or four decades.
