A seed company that once was open and thriving has now gone to seed. In addition to the ‘Americana’ feel to this, I am struck by two things. First there is the curious spacing on the painted lettering. It appears they created space to allow the door full exposure, without the possibility of distraction from letters. But more striking are the white stains behind the windows which to my eye creates a very real ghost like effect. Scary as hell, me thinks.
The tiny Northern Colorado town of Gill may well have passed ‘sleepy’ and is now close to dead. There is a grain elevator, and scattered homes in various states of disrepair. This may have been a store front before surrendering to economics and time.
The side of a very old building reveals two barred windows that are similar but different. This building has been finished in stucco and has been painted a South Western color that you would find plentiful in New Mexico.
