Dig that's 70's architecture and typeface - groovy baby! (I can say that without irony as I actually had the 'privilege' of living through the 70's.)
Grabbed these shots a couple of weekends ago while exploring on the Olympic Peninsula. This is the first time I've tried to document a place like this, and while I didn't do the best job here, I learned a heck of a lot about how to do it.
The light isn't the greatest as the day was fairly cloudy.
As near as I can tell, this place was abandoned sometime after 2003. (That's the latest date that Google Earth shows the greenhouses intact and the property appearing green and maintained.) The general condition of the building seems to also support that. It's very odd that they went out of business just as the rest of the area was starting a massive growth spurt - many other, equally isolated, businesses seem to be thriving. Not far away is a well regarded French restaurant that seems to have been there since the glaciers receded.
