this is a repost of a photo I did previously, I had a request to post a black and white version.
Taken in Alabama with a Kodak Z1012

This barn is at the primary entrance and exit to Sequoyah Caverns in DeKalb County, Alabama. Upon leaving the Caverns, motorists are presented with a choice. Turn left and you are 877 Miles from New York, New York to the North, or turn right and you are 462 Miles from New Orleans, LA to the South.

Located on U.S. Highway 11. This highway was established in 1926 and follows much of the same route then as it does now, although it has been lengthened to 1645 total miles in 10 states.

The metal pole in the center is an actual pole, not painted. The small triangular JCT. sign at the top has been affixed onto the pole, just as the U.S. 11 Shield has been.

    The b/w version is fabulous. As a photo it seems so incongrous but with your story it makes sense. Sandy

  • Thank you so much. I came acrossit by mistake, I wasn’t going to the caverns I used the road to turn around, and when I turned on the small bridge, this barn was sitting there to the side of the road. :)
