I have driven past this little building along rt 78 west,just past Bethlehem PA ,Probably thousands of times. I Pulled off the highway to take a picture of it,It is all that remains of what used to be a homestead,probably was bought out when the highway went through the farm, As I drove off the other day,I was wondering ,,should I post it on tractor talk? Then I realised why we all like this tractor site,Sure it is an old tractor site,but it is more than that ,Most of the people on this site have something in common. They realise that time does not stand still,but they try the best they can to hang on to some history,and use old stuff if it is still good,I guess thats why I took the picture and posted it,It may be just a little old shed that used to sit next to a farmhouse,but somebody worked hard to build it,so I Think it is worthy of a picture and a posting on T Talk,,,,, I hope some of you do too

larry@stines,
That is so cool! Great photo. I would love to wander around there...though the vines would make it difficult.

Glad you posted it. And I agree, I think many on this site have a common love of all things old and preserving them (and photos are a way of preserving them).

I feel the same way. When I see an old huge barn, I can just imagine the many men and their great craftsmanship that it took to build such a building a hundred years ago. Thanks for the picture Larry.

Just wish the building could talk.. You gotta wonder about who, what, when and where,,,,,, when you see an old site like that. Boy, the stories it could tell..

Nice picture Larry.
Looks like that little shed has a chimney. Smokehouse maybe?
Sometimes the stories and the history are the best part and they
help make the old things worth hanging on to.

Hey Larry -

I did you one better - this picture is not only an old farm building, I took it with a camera that"s at least 70 years old. I kind of like the slightly blurry image the old lens makes, black and white film seemed appropriate. Old stuff indeed!

I can't tell from the photo, but wonder if it could be a maple syrup shack?

Ohh, yes, keep posting those pics! they remind me of my Grand-daddy"s farming days, way back in the 1930"s. Yeah, i am that old! (B. 1924.)
All or most all of the farm buildings looked like that shed, maybe not the big barns, but the smaller buildings. good to see at least one surviving now!

Like others have said: If that building could talk. What are the vines? Is that normal? Looks like they could eat up the entire place in a few years. Stan
