Looking Down Main Street


It's the grain warehouse that gives the south end of Main Street clarity, just where it turns to rejoin the old highway. The general store is on my left, the tavern is behind me. This, such as it is, is the retail center. Once there was a train depot by the track that runs along the back of the long grain warehouse. They've moved the post office and the factory has closed. Even the highway left town, though the clarity remains.
