"The Silence of Arches"...


Built in the 1930's, ivy and erosion now consume the abandoned Carden Bottom school. These arches cover the pathway from the school building (right) to the gym (left). The gym, built in 1936, had burned some years ago. The school building has subsequently fallen victim to fire as well. You can almost see the children walking and playing in this pathway. Hopefully, the public can learn from these abandoned mistakes and provide better, continued use of these wonderful structures that were built to last.

This is one of many photographs I've made of this historical place.
Location: central Arkansas.
