Old Silo

You don’t see a lot of these around.  It’s a wooden feed silo.  I have no guess of its age, but these tended to rot out over a period of time.  It’s located on the right on Highway 58 in Lee County VA, just a bit east of the junction of 58 and 421.

Makes Me Go “Huh?”

Long Time, No Fire

Southeast Kentucky.  This hydrant is on a water line supplying a large mining operation that folded its tents and slowly moved away in the mid-50s.

1950s Delta Kiddie Wings

I don’t know why I always get the odd ones.  The standard for this late 1950’s Junior Stewardess pin, given out to young girls when they boarded a Delta plane, is at Fly the Branded Skies.  Look under “D” for Delta.  Mine, however, lacks the cardboard backing that came with every kiddie wings, the Delta logo is crooked and the back’s really crudely done.  No hallmark, either.  Bummer.

I’m going to put this in a new card folder, but this is mostly how it looked when I bought it (for under $4).  My pencil notation is what I dug up on the web.
