In the five years I've been blogging I've posted many of these old Mail Pouch barns. However, I'd have to say that this is probably the best well preserved one I've ever seen. When it came into view I couldn't believe how bright the paint was and how lovely the setting. Although it was literally right beside the road. I was sitting in my Jeep pulled just off the road in front of that tree. If you look closely you can see the dirty windshield glare.
A few miles further down was this crumbling Mail Pouch barn. It stands in stark contrast to the one above. It's unused and neglected and I doubt it will be around much longer. You can't see from the photo but the foundation is coming away underneath. I didn't notice until I downloaded the photo that this one has what is called a ghost image underneath. Apparently something else was advertised before the Mail Pouch ad was added. I hope I can make it back to check that out further before the barn is gone.
There were four of these old barns on this one route that day. I'll post the other two next week.
Linking to Tricia's Barn Charm.
