Nice silo, Marilyn!
What is the view from upstairs?
There's at least one former farm here that has built a new top onto an old silo--a top with a number of windows. I think they use it for guests--probably with a circular staircase up to the new room. It would have a nice view! That could be done with this one.
Yes, Bruce, it's concrete, as seen in the broken wall of this other one.
As you see, the one you're looking at here is complete with a concrete top. Others were built with other types of tops and I hope to get at least one picture of that, though time is running out before we leave here for the Australia/New Zealand trip.
With one type of cap or another, this is the most common type of old silo around here. There are also concrete ones that must have been out of pre-fab components rather than poured, and of course modern ones are those big metal things.
Wow... we have to see that!
Correct indeed, I find this intriguing! How wonderful. I have never seen anything like this around here. It's wonderful. Totally neat.
Thanks, MaryAlice. I decided rather late in the summer that I should have been taking more silo photos. I'm fascinated by their variety. If you check my "silo" tag you may find a couple others you like. And I think there are some "barn" tag shots that you probably haven't seen but might like. I hope to do more old barns and especially silos this summer. Since I got stuck in the snow photographing one abandoned farm, I'm not eager to repeat that experience this winter!
¿Que es, de la Segunda Guerra Mundial? Saludos.
Not a silo for war. A silo in which farmers store grain for their animals! Thank you for your visit.
