Texarkana

Took my walk this morning with one of my sisters through downtown Texarkana. Most of what caught my eye were the run-down places, but this church was really pretty with the sunrise shining on it.

This caboose was parked on a side track all by itself. The working trains run behind it.

You can tell from the details that some of these buildings were gorgeous in their prime.

This building shows how this part of town was built around trains; these doors are high off the ground to line up with the train cars.

Trains used to run up the middle of these, too.

About wonkydonkey

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.
