There's a gap, I suppose, between the authentic and the synthetic. I also suppose with this image that I have tumbled hopelessly into it.
In the daily commute, here's the 400 block of N. Lime St. and the only gasoline station in the city's northern end. The owners get away with an extra dime a gallon above prices just outside of Lancaster. It's city profiteering. Incidentally, the city's oldest cemetary surrounds these two structures and extends up the rest of this block on the right. I suspect that this house is the home of the cemetar's caretaker. On the other side of the street to your left is Lancaster's nursing school which opened last year.
