I love old structures that are no longer used, especially when they present a good opportunity to imagine what it was like when they were.

Rode by this in rural Vermont during my recently-completed two-week tour home to Philly. In case itís hard to read, the sign advertises a dance every Saturday night.

My mother bought a similar key for my father's Hudson back in the 60s. He refused to put it on.
