A Fine Looking Bench

A bench surrounded by stylized elevators.
      When I was photographing one of the statues, I noticed this bench. It's in front of the local museum. since this area is agricultural area we have a lot of grain produced. At one time every little town had several grain elevators to handle the grain the farmers produced. Grain elevators were very tall structures so the the grain could be lifted to the top and then channeled into bins or box cars. Today all the grain elevators are gone except for a few that have been kept for historical purposes.

     This would be a good project for Far Side at Far Side of Fifty.

     This bench is surrounded by five stylized grain elevators. It's a nice place to sit and think about how things were done.
