This was one of those shots that just didn't work in color. But I think in black and white it has a feeling much like The Last Picture Show, the 1971 film by Peter Bogdanovich. When it was taken Brooks Store was open and operated by my friend Bill Jones. The truck belonged to his son-in-law.
Since this photo, Gary has sold the truck and Bill has died. The store is closed, its windows boarded over and its shelves empty. The building is abandoned and being allowed to decay. Three treasures have been lost.
