Side Adventure

On my way to find Public School #4, hidden beneath I-95 and I-10 in Jacksonville FL, I stumbled across this interesting building.

On closer inspection it seemed to be refurbished out of unique salvaged finds.

So with no further hesitation we pulled around back and low and behold more salvaged stuff!

As we walked toward the door, Dorothy greeted us and took us through her building. She said that her husband is a licensed salvager and used bits and pieces to create this building.

Through this door is so much more! Broken marble used on the floors, copper flashing hand hammered doors! Bits and pieces of time gone past attached and placed on every vacant wall and ceiling space exposed. All this on the way to Public School #4. Instead of a building ready for death by salvage it was a house emblished by a "licensed salvager".
