Union Street, Salem, Virginia

I’m a Yankee.  Sooner or later, I had to find myself on Union Street.

The house you see in the third and fourth photos has just GOT to be haunted.

And that giant sawed-off tree trunk would make an INCREDIBLE fortress for G.I. Joes.

Former Peacock-Salem Launderers and Cleaners building in Salem, VA

This building had too much character for me not to photograph it.  It is the former site of the Peacock-Salem Launderers and Cleaners on Colorado Street in Salem.

The business is not defunct — they actually just moved elsewhere in town five years ago. Prior to that, the building below was used since 1935.
