Unlovely but interesting?

Ten years ago, there were quite a few of these old garages scattered across East Cornwall and West Devon, looking as though they'd fallen into a timewarp in about 1970 and fallen out again in 2000, rather battered and tired, but essentially still working. I wish I'd photographed them then. Most of them have now been tidied away into history by soaring petrol prices and the rising demand for land, but this one, Down's Garage in Mary Tavy is still (for now) standing, if not exactly thriving.

I think it looks interesting, if not beautiful. When I saw this ancient and rather grimy tractor puffing up to it, I screeched my car to a halt and took a photo. I didn't have time to fiddle with settings so the lighting could be better, but still. Bigger versions if you click...
