I suppose it has had its say, but it made a very fine subject for photography.

Even though its overgrown, its a perfect photo opportunity. I think that's what makes it interesting.

Great shot. Scary how quickly things can get overgrown!

Such a sign is a kind of monument to a long forgotten past. If only it could tell some stories...!
