I was driving south on Route 11 between Abingdon and Bristol VA. Within a mile, I passed a brilliant field of yellow flowers (mustard?), a dilapidated mom and pop style motel (single story L-shape), and this, the Robert E. Lee Motel. I turned around and stopped to photograph the R.E.L. first.



It was starting to rain when I stopped, and I only managed to get a few photos before the skies opened up. Sans-umbrella, I had to pack it up. The field and the other motel will have to wait until another day.

Litharge or lead oxide is a toxic yellow substance, formula PbO, created by heating lead in air. It can also be formed by heating lead nitrate (Pb(NO3)2. It is used in the manufacture of paints and in glass, as well as in vulcanization.

Do I know that is lead oxide in the picture? No, I do not. But it LOOKS toxic, and it made me think of lead compounds, thus the name.

this series was taken around an abandoned factory a few towns over. I will probably repost some of them in the rural ruin community.
