09-05-16 Bent with Age (Polo, SD)

By Scott Shephard

I mentioned a while back that locations and subjects sometimes seek me out to photograph them ("Shouting Out in Whispers"). On the same day I photographed the old farm you see in that post, I also stopped to photograph this old building along the main road through Polo, SD. I'm glad I did because I noticed a few days ago that the building no longer exists.

If my Polo friends are reading this, perhaps one of them can give me a little history on this building, which I'm guessing was some kind of store. To me it was a curiosity. But to those who lived in Polo, I would guess it was much more than that.
