I agree with Alan, this is a very rich shot in more ways than one

I love your buildings - they are so different to ours - this is so attractive in style. A lovely almost rustic looking shot. It is lovely to be able to still see something your Grandfather created. Lovely soft colours in this. Viv

Oooh. I can see that it's old. The Asbestos siding and roofing dates it. Your Grandpa did a great job here. Any thoughts of restoration?

Thanks, everyone for looking and for the generous ratings. There used to be a railroad track that led into the water so boats could be put on a car and rolled in and out of the water. I think over the years the tracks are now buried in the sand. Maybe some day the family will do something to restore it.
Thanks again, everyone. Smile!

... how cool is that... hope to see more....
p.s. looks like the work of a perfectionist, it's so well done (& to look as such, after all these years!).. those doors and peeling paint look like beautiful macro fodder
