To begin with, an empty shop premises that unaccountably got overlooked for the specfic post that featured those all too common doors. This must have been the local equivalent of Blockbuster:

Back to a previous life this week for Cee’s Black $ White Photo Challenge with the topic of Doors and Drawers.
