I love postcards like this one. No distinctive landmark, unique scenery, vacation spot, or subject of civic pride. But it's from an era when every town had a postcard series. So the photographer gives us a muddy farm road & a drainage ditch next to what appears to be a railroad.
Once a year my husband and I take trips to Michigan's Upper Peninsula which has lots of neat little areas like this. The best was when we happened upon an abandoned and clearly quite dilapidated old house. We took some pictures of it. It was eerily interesting and oddly sad.
In the back yard we found a bear trap that'd been sprung.
All in all, exploring the area around that house made me realize, more than ever, exactly how interesting the more wild places in the world are.
