memorial for a civilization

You'll have to click on the picture to appreciate the message on the sign and its significance in the context of the scene..

Words don't fail me often, but they do when I look at the disused gas pumps and echoey slogan, and the abandoned little store with its melancholy air.

The Jesus is Lord gas station is on Irondale Road, which is pretty much the dividing line between the semi-rural villages of Irondale and Port Hadlock. It's the very picture of long-running decay and exhaustion, and a perfect symbol of the industrial age, now shuffling out the door.
