old bastrop store front
lock drug store
According to the Texas Historical Commission plaque, this building housed the W.J. Miley Drugstore from 1905 to 1967. After getting back home, I researched (Googled) it by its current name (Lock Drug Store), and discovered that it still has its turn-of-the-century interior, complete with old-time soda fountain.

humble gasoline station
This appeared to be the partial remains of a Humble Gas Station, the property now being used as a "cash station," or ATM. If it was a gas station, this is a creative way to preserve something possibly historic, while still making money off of the property.
