In Hartley, Tex., an old Dodge pickup reposes in view of the Tillotson elevator’s rounded headhouse.
Tillotson Construction Co. records don’t show it, but we think the storage annex at Hartley was one of their later jobs.
I have to confess I don’t know where in the Texas Panhandle this was–nothing in my notes about it–but here’s a random elevator complex that seems worth sharing.
A closer view of the metal-clad wooden elevator. Note the modest eaves, which reduced the chance of catching sparks from a passing train.
These are marvelous. I especially love the truck! I guess I have an affection for old trucks.
