All of us enjoy things that we experience as we ride around on our motorcycles. For some it’s the sound of a rumbling V-twin. Others enjoy the quiet ride of a horizontally opposed engine. Yet others enjoy the simplicity and ease of a Vespa so that they can quickly manuever or stop for that perfect photograph. Personally I enjoy taking in all the scenery and unique sights of this wonderful country of ours. One of my friends is continually on the lookout for old things. Things most people have forgotten about. The old saying of one man’s junk is another man’s treasure comes to mind.
Several of us enjoy the beauty and mystery of old barns. Today I’m going to tell you about a new barn with old things inside. At first look you might think this barn is just like any other barn. I hope you soon understand that you truly can’t judge a book by its cover.
Everyone knows that if you are going to have a barn then it’s an unwritten law that you must have a tractor. Well let’s see we have toy tractors, pictures of tractors and advertisements about tractors. Oh! I suppose I had better include real tractors. Here is an old Model G John Deere Tractor.
What else would you expect to find in a barn. Well let’s see…………ummmmm how about some horse tack.
There are many things in this collection of antiques. There are everyday items from days gone by to old store displays. There are even a few things to remind us of some of the not so wonderful times in America. Some of the items have special meaning. I’ll keep those things to myself. I hope you enjoy these next few photographs and the look inside a new barn full of old memories. Hopefully I’ve given you some things to ponder as you ride around the countryside and see sites such as these. Just remember you may be seeing One Man’s Museum.
