Appalachia Press

click on photo to enlarge
108 Salem Ave . Roanoke

Wanting to learn about the building and its history I dove into Bing (I'm weaning myself off Google) and found out that it was once Crystal Springs Laundry, although I don't know how old the building is. I showed you the side of it which has a mural painted on it HERE
and for more info on Appalachia Press you can visit their website HERE and if you still want to know more, I found this in-depth interview with the owner (where I found out what the building first was) HERE

We are getting ready for single digit temps tonight...oh my!

  9. This really is a cool place. I went Christmas shopping there a few weeks ago. How can you not like a place that sells bacon-oriented products (like bacon band aids)!

  10. Cool building! But why are you weaning yourself off Google? Something I should know? My fingers type the word so easily, after all the searches I've done. LOL
    Stay warm.

  11. Of course we have the same weather. Now I have to ask, why no more Google??

  12. Oh I do like the building, and isn't Santa sweet! It's like he's greeting all! I'm not a real fan of Bing, it seems they are much more limited and Google always has more than a person would ever dream of so much of the time!

  13. It does look quite old. We are getting down to 21 tonight, which is pretty cold for us!

  14. Quite an enduring building! I like the look of it.

    Here the high today was -20C. I have no idea what that translates into on the Fahrenheit scale, but that doesn't factor in the windchill on top of it.

  15. I love to see "old" buildings put to good use. There's so much character and charm already built in. Teens for us tonight, the birds are loading up on seed for a cold one.

  16. That's what I call old school and small town! I like it!

  17. It is going to be really cold down here overnight, too. Mid-40s. Yes, you hate me.
