I was on my way back from scouting out locations for a wedding job when I came upon the Swan Lake Produce Barn.
The faded sign over the door grabbed me on my first trip past the old farmstead.
Then I noticed the stone foundation, not often seen in Illinois, but very common in Wisconsin.
Finally, the overgrown weeds nearby.
Perfect, I thought.
The perfect visual symbol of bygone days that our kids will know only in history books, if at all.
Enjoy the view!
