When I looked at that photo my first thought was what is a Texas laundry/cleaner? How interesting.

It's funny how the buildings are abandoned but the signs are rarely removed!

This is wonderful. But how did a dry cleaners from Texas get all the way to Lisbon? I know, they rode horseback!

Hay por desgracia muchos abandonados y han sido grandes edificios.
Un beso.

Interesting sign, and I wonder where the name "Texas" comes from.
