History in a Pecan Shell

Currently not available.

Photographer's Note:
Ever heard of Tesco, Tx? There is a single building just north of I-20 nine miles east of Sweetwater. My maps, ProMap and DeLorme,Texas Atlas, show there used to be a town named Tesco in the same location. Can't tell is this is a left over or was build by the power company.

Handbook of Texas doesn't have a listing on it.

It always interested me and I finally stopped to photograph it.
