An old barn along Interstate 55 just north of Hamel, IL. This was part of the fabled Route 66 that ran from Chicago IL. to California. The 2 lane hi way ran through my town before crossing the Mississippi River into St. Louis MO. Many old barns were painted to advertise upcoming roadside attractions along the route. Sadly these icons are disappearing. This barn went down in violent storm several weeks ago.
