Remember using this?

An old Outhouse at the                   abandoned Homeplace of Michael Crowell near Halls Mill                   in Bedford County, Tennessee. Collecting photos of                   Middle Tennessee Outhouses seems somewhat strange, but                   due to the fact that these Tennessee treasures are                   fast disappearing from the Tennessee landscape makes                   it all the more necessary to photograph them. Those                    Outhouses which have not been destroyed or removed by                   human hands and urban development are fast decaying                   from the elements of time.

Gas Stations used to be                   called service stations ... they would rush to your                   car, check the water and oil, put air in your tires,                   wash your windows, and pump your gas.
