Remember When - SkyWatch Friday

Garage Sale Advenetures continued: We found this cute little feed store in a small country town along the way. The Mail Pouch Tobacco painting on the side of the barn caught our attention. Follow this link to learn the history and story behind the Mail Pouch Tobacco barns.

  1. The sides of barns provide good advertising. The cost of advertising would be less than other mediums .... a fresh paint job on the barn and a yearly stipend.

  8. Great photo, Gwendolyn. I love all the flowers around that old barn. We have many of these Mail Pouch Tobacco paintings on barns in Ohio.

  15. Gwendolyn, lovely capture of a quaint old barn and "pretty as a picture". ;) What is it about old barns, abandoned houses and buildings...

  18. I agree with many of the above. I like old barns. I like their shape. I like their use. I like old signs. Especially faded ones. It is just a shame that this series relates to tobacco, a vile weed that is costing society so much in medical costs. The chewing variety is especially cancer inducing. I note that the Wiki entry says that they are now called Mail Pouch barns, eliminating the reference to tobacco.

    A really good, though provoking post for this Friday. Thank you.

  25. Thanks for stopping by to see my SWF kayaking sunset. What a great barn and I love the refurbished sign. We just went to an old time country fair last night and many of the buildings had murals and signs on them. It is so good to live away from the big city and enjoy life at a slower pace. - Margy
