Abandoned storefront, Mto wa Mbu, Tanzania

Mto wa Mbu is a village of about 18,000 residents in Tanzania. It is a diverse town, with people from 120 different tribes living and working there. This building was on a backstreet we walked on during our tour of part of the village. The design is typical of  many storefronts we saw while driving through both urban and rural areas of Kenya and Tanzania.

Random Road

Once Upon A Time, . . .

Abandoned Road, in or near C&O Canal National Historic Park at Four Locks, near Clear Springs, Maryland.

Dilapidated entrance gate to road leading to Potomac Dell, a private home that at one time opened its grounds to the public, at no charge. The ad below describes all that it offered. The ad is from the Hagerstown, Maryland newspaper The Daily Mail, 23 May 1955, Mon, Page 2. The ad is the only information I could find about Potomac Dell so I can’t say when or why the property was abandoned. There is a large deteriorating house near the paved road.
