Leo knows me so well. He sent me a link to a website of old aerial photos of farms. As he said, “I feel like you would enjoy this site, you can really go down a rabbit hole of photos.” He has found some good shots of train crossings and signals, etc.

Down the rabbit hole I went.

Remember the crumbling house outside of Kansas, Illinois that I love so much?

A shot from when I first saw it in 2019

Below are aerial photos of it taken between 1966 and 1983. Forgive the watermarks but if you’re interested in vintage images their website is worth a look.

Somewhere there must be a shot of it in its heyday…
