    A close up of the additional pumping station next to that mill.
    It was build in 1879 for when there was no wind.
    It worked that way till 1959, when a diesel engine replaced the old steam engine.

    20200404_135415.jpg This is more of a picture with a windmill. Sometimes I just love the wide open space. Such a nice change from the hustle and bustle of the city. The windmill is not a beauty queen by any means, just a skeleton of a once busy mine site in the good old west.

    that's awesome that the brand & location is still visible on the tail of the windmill, especially since the company hasn't been in Chicago since the late 40s-early 50s...

    This is on South Grade Rd in Alpine Ca. I’ve been meaning to take a photo of this one for a while. I’m pretty sure it was intact last time I went by. 31B95B21-BAA3-458D-AABE-BE2DFE478AFB.jpeg

    I guess the damage must have happened when they moved it from Intact to Alpine.

    I don’t regularly “like” pictures without a motorcycle in it, but I’ve made an exeption for this one; very nice.

    Ha. Thanks. I was a magazine editor for many years and would often get great stories of riders from around the world that I would not publish. Because the images, even if they were great, ALWAYS had a motorcycle in them. Motorcycle next to sign, next to a tent, in front of a mountain, beside a bridge, behind a mailbox, on the side of a road....

    Is that here in the States? Those buildings look Dutch.
