Old Mule Barn by Patricia Montgomery

Currently unavailable for purchase

One of a series of images taken in and around my hometown of Rome, Georgia.

Another view of the old mule barn, which is now used to store the tedder and bush hog. My father-in-law, Jack, built this 2nd barn when he tore down the original mule barn. He took the tin off the old barn, turned it over and put it on this barn. Now over 50-60 years later the same turned-over tin is still keeping the front side of the barn dry. A few sheets of the tin on the back side of the barn was replaced a few years ago when a blowing hail storm damaged the roof.

The other view:

Location: Cave Spring, Georgia

    Hard to believe that this is the same barn as the previous picture, I never would have thought that it looked like this from this angle. Love the look of the sky in this one! Great work again :)
