Winner: Elevators Under Moonlight, - Mossleigh Alberta
This challenge would encompass grain bins or silos on individual farms or more commercial graineries in CoOps or other places. If it is constructed to hold grain on a large scale (NOT kitchen types of containers) then it would fit the challenge. Please put both an apropriate title and location of the photo. Without these two things, it is apt to be disqualified.

Winner: Which route?
I have just returned from a long absence and took a long drive down Rte 66 in AZ, NM, and TX. There are a lot of memorabalia along that rte from when the "Mother Road" was alive and well (before I40). It could be a building, sign, or anything that depicts the essence of these memories. Without this, the entry will be disqualified. Have fun.

Please title and give a location in either the title or description. I don't want any file...

There are many interesting weathervanes on houses, barns, historic buildings. courthouses, mansions, etc. The weathervane must be attached to a building. They may be beautiful, unique, crude, practical. They do not have to be antique (though those are nice to see), but they must be attached to a building of some kind instead of just laying around or for sale in an antique shop somewhere....

Winner: Tetons Outhouse
Do you remember when indoor plumbing was not common? Neither do I but I have found many outhouses still exist (though not really utilized). I am looking for historic examples of these and not the metal type used at festivals and other public places. Enjoy.
