The first snowfall of the season decorates an old sag-roofed barn in Door County.


Professional

Professional

This small old time band and its director looked and sounded very professional.  A lively rendition of The Little Brown Jug was apparently inspired by the contents of its namesake which was placed handily at the feet of the clarinet player.

 


Warped

Fence posts warped through time in the hot, dry South Dakota climate.

 


Vanity

Wearing a period English vanity plate, this TR3A vainly shunned the grassy parking field in favor of a more picturesque driveway.

 


Used

An old barn once used as an antique store is owned by a club member and served as the perfect gathering place.

 


The Letter X

The construction of the loft doors form perfect Xs on the Kortesmaa Cattle Barn located on the Finnish Ketola Farm which originated in the Town of Oulu, Bayfield County, 1893.


Blurred

A costumed German settler swings his blurred mallet as he splits wood on a stump inside his machine shed on the Koepsell Farm (1880)  developed by Pomeranian immigrants.  The Machine Shed originated in town of Mequon, Ozaukee County.


Barn

Before paint was readily available farmers used linseed oil mixed with milk, lime and rust to seal the barn boards. The mixture dried to a dark tint of red.

The old red barn is becoming scarce in Wisconsin. Where once every farm would proudly have a red barn, there are now more and more corporate farms that favor metal pole buildings.


Footwear

A lonely red four foot tall boot stands In a farm field to point the way to a footwear sale at a nearby equestraian store.

 


Barren

These abandoned barracks in Door County, Wisconsin provided shelter for cherry pickers of yore.
