I like the picture of the b uildings here. Do you know if they've been restored or not? Feel free to look at my pictures too.

Yes, a certain amount of restoration has gone into these buildings on Main Street. But the town is under-populated and many stores are empty. A century ago two men and threir families could only farm 100 acres. Nowadays, two men and their families can farm 10,000 acres using big tractors. Most kids born in farming families end up moving away now, along with the shopkeepers in the towns.

Nice row of houses, and interesting explanations. In Germany, we have the same effects, in particular in the former Eastern part. ++++ Jürgen sends you his greetings from Frankfurt-upon-Main, Germany
