Random rubbish

I am having to search the archives for something for Rubbish Tuesday...the first one above is from last summer on road trip over to Effingham, Illinois.  It is a drive-by.  I did what I could with it to make it look sharper.
The above is from north of us here in Indiana, at least I am 99% sure it is.

And below is from the Vermilion Museum in Danville, Illinois.  If I remember correctly, this is the desk used by Lincoln and his law partner
If I can remember, I am going to link to Rubbish Tuesday in the morn!

That is one solid table. It is massive on the top and bottom. Fine shots.

Love Lincoln's desk! And that barn is awesome! We discovered on Ancestry that our grandson is a descendant of a first cousin of Lincolns and he is so proud of that!

It's amazing that the barn in the first image is still standing with the weight of that huge rusty roof. It looks like it could crumble at a moment's notice!

Beautiful desk! Mike enjoys all things having to do with Lincoln. I'll be sure to tell him about this museum.

Hi Rose, Love those two old barns... I just look at the photos and wonder what all went on in them for many years... WELL--if barns could talk, they would definitely have something to day!!!!

Love the old desk --and that spittoon...Guess that thing is 'worthless' these days...

Hugs,
Betsy

Great photos, Rose. That desk is huge!

I recognize that first barn. The one near Effingham. Now I'm going to have to drive over and see if it's where I think it is. Both barns are awesome and the desk is full of history! Thanks for joining in!

What a beautiful desk.

Great shots. I love that desk!

I enjoyed all three of your photos. To understand the present, we must remember the past.
I think we've lost much the last four decenniums. Thrashed buildings, books,tools, and household items. Rootless youth, I pity them. Your pictures are handing forwards a legacy. Great job.

Rubbish Tuesday? I hadn't heard of that before.

Both old barns could use some TLC but look like they are still in use. Wow! That desk sure does look solid!
