Great photo. Note the exchange box on the openwire telephone pole.
5 arms is a major through-line to somewhere ! Odd that there would be
an exchange box at a location like this. These were generally placed where
the drop to the exchange building was taken. Could it be in the building
behind ???

The builder must have run short on bricks and had a lot of mortar ! Those
mortar lines are half the thickness of the bricks !!!

Perhaps he got paid per sack of cement instead of per brick :-).

There was a small vacant station like that on Rt 20 between Ashtabula and Geneva Ohio that I was always going to pull in and take pictures of my cars but I kept putting it off and now last summer they tore it down :-( should've could've would've only taken a few minutes.

Banners are so easy to make. Take that photo to a banner printer, and let them do their magic.
