Plemmons & Irvin
The Corvette for sale on Coliseum Drive is gone. I can't help wondering if it was sold or hit.
Speaking of Coliseum Drive, it turns into 27th Street at the intersection with University. Just past the Dixie Classic Fairgrounds on 27th, one passes one of my favorite buildings in Winston-Salem: Plemmons & Irvin Wholesale Produce Inc.
I can't put my finger on what appeals to me so. The whole thing is just fabulous. Low-slung, the building has a rusting red metal roof, faded lettering, and miscellaneous pieces of things in the shade, waiting. Even the colors of the sky and roadway seem muted there. I love it all.
