Perpetual Constant: Stepping back in time

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by james dragoo

This photograph was taken in M.A. Pace General Store in Saluda, NC. According to the locals, this place has not changed in appearance since it opened in the early 1900s. Upon walking into the store, one is overwhelmed with the pleasant sense of what it must have been like to step foot in that establishment long before most of our time.

Location: Saluda, NC, United States
