  1. We have a very similar looking building near our railway line - its some kind of elevator powered by a huge water tank in the roof - not in use and fairly derelict now (a good photo for next week perhaps). It's in an area of rejuvenation so I guess at some point something will be done with it. Great photo!

    1. It is sad to see them disappear. I try to capture all of the old stuff. That is our history! Thanks, Roan.

    1. Thank you, Janey. Bill is a long haul trucker. I took this at 65 MPH, out the window of the rig, as I do almost all of my road shots. I love this kind of scene.

    1. I took this last February. I believe that it is still there. It is cattle country, so there are a few old ones left.

  9. That really is an oldie ... I assume it is no longer in use except maybe as a landmark. Awesome shot, McGuffy ...

    1. Some are, though this one is not in use. I love the old (farm) structures.
      Thanks!

  10. Nice! We actually have an old grain elevator on our property. We used it a bit, but it got pretty tired and wasn't worth the expense to repair it to some sort of usable condition. Sign of the times, I suppose?

  13. Curious building. I wonder what the top structure is...an office, an apartment?

    1. The tower of the grain elevator has the bucket system. which scoops up the grain. It then carries it from lower levels to upper levels for storage.

  14. There must be a lot of history attached to this old grain elevator.

  16. That's just rustic and well-aged...not really rubbish. Hugs, Janet

    1. I agree...the meme title is ironic, really. The links are all beautifully aged things that are abandoned or forgotten. Hugs.
