    That's actually asbestos shingles covering the house and as you said there are a lot of structures in Tennessee that were built this way.

    Can you give a coordinate or location of this? I go through that area occasionally and would like to see it.

    It was right in town--somewhere N of Amity and W of Metcalf, as best I can recall. Maybe start looking behind the Landmark National Bank? I think they've built some houses back in there since, so it the area not be as accessible now.

    I know exactly where this is :cool:
    My family has some property between Graysville and Soddy Daisy. Haven't been there in close to a decade now, although I've been in the area a few times.

    There was a railroad through there until the late 50's. Perhaps some kind of loading or warehouse facility.

    I'm curious. What prompted businesses to close Wednesday afternoons?

    I don’t have a clue to the rhyme or reason. I moved to the area from PA in the mid 70’s and that was the first I ever heard of such a practice. If memory serves, large stores like grocery stores or Lowes kept normal hours but most everything else closed up at lunch on Wednesday and was open half a day on Saturday. The DMV gigged me a couple times with this when I’d get off early from work, not thinking about it being Wednesday, to get one of my new junkers tagged and titled only to find the office closed.

    Interesting stuff right there. It's one of the things I love about cross country travel - especially by MC. You find out about these little "local idiosyncrasies", or more likely you find out there these ARE "local idiosyncrasies" that you wouldn't have imagined even existed.

    Thanks!
