A hot dry day, finally with Piglet with me in the car, I could park, and walk in off the road to take pictures. This little treasure had caught my eye some time ago, but it was never a good time to park off to the side of the busy roadway, and walk over to where this little house is.
The lot is big enough and shows signs of having had two outdoor “toilets” off to one side. There is also a bigger building, commercial from how it appears. but of course, I only had eyes for the two story charmer. The top has been removed from the ground floor, and placed as you see them. The small doorway is between the building, and has lost its door.
Someone at some time, had, intentions for this little “cottage” It would have been bright and welcoming inside with all those windows. I was surprised that the remains did not have a musty smell. The wood was dry and still had the smell that wood gets when it has been baking in the sun.
Rust has been working on the metal for some time. Building its many layers producing wonderful displays as only rust can. It is not very everyone, but textured materials, remnants of another time, another life, for me are inspiring.
Hope you have enjoyed this little visit to a place on an old road that once was the main highway to the city of Montreal, in the province of Quebec.
