Lindsay and my grandson (also a keen photographer of old stuff) and I had a wonderful day meandering around the area and in Bents itself. I made it to the front rooms of the upstairs of the store which I had never done before due to worries about the floors (quite a valid concern) and got shots of the wonderful painted walls in the bedrooms, among many other of the usual shots. So that was Friday's visit.
Another friend who wanted to come on Friday but couldn't saw my wall shots and became obsessed with getting to photograph the walls. I said we should do it on the first possible bright day as they are north facing and the sun wouldn't be getting any farther north than it already is for this year. Monday was our day, and I was beyond shocked when we saw the sign posted. I agree that there has been a lot of damage done over the past four years since I learned about Bents and started going there, and perhaps this will at least slow the deterioration down. Still, a sad day for photographers, and as usual we are being punished for the transgressions of others.

I was going to call up one of the owners of the store (probably the same family you are talking about) to learn a bit more of the town. Stories about Bents would be super good. I guess they just got tied of all the damage folks have done and I do not blame them. It is rather sad, Bents is a cool place.
