    We have a few old storefronts in Minot, ND, that look like this. 🙂

      Karen, I want to come to ND some day. A few years ago I sat transfixed on the sofa reading a Nat Geo piece on the fate of so many of the towns in the state…real, live(?), modern day ghost towns here in the US! I was mesmerized. And the reasons behind the whole phenomena were so profound. I couldn’t believe the people originally “lured” there were so hardy (or stubborn) and stuck it out for so long!

    Love old building photos, both “thens” and “nows” they are always so much more special looking…like they know stuff!

    Don’t come in the winter! That leaves May, June, July, and August. 🙂 Take a look at the website Ghosts of North Dakota. If you google it, it pops right up. Interesting stuff. We have lots of ghostly places as well as old buildings, barns, an abandoned sanitarium (which people have told me I SHOULD NOT GO TO!). Makes me want to go there that much more. I am only here because this is where the A.F. sent my son and his family. We won’t be staying here once he retires in about five years.

    I love faded signs on fading buildings. Your photo is starkly beautiful and intriguing. What commerce must have been there and how long did the unrelenting weather try to dismantle that stoic facade?
