Dick's Barns Slide Show

I'm now offering selected photos from my collection in slide show form.  The slide show should begin automatically when the window opens. If it does not, refreshing the page usually resolves the problem. Click on the double rectangle icon in the upper right for Full Screen. Press F11 to return to normal view.

 

It seems like I've always been fascinated by barns. New or old, they have a special character. The first barn photo I took was in the 1960s, and appears first in the slide show. I just put numbers for the captions, since some barns need no description other than "Barn in Indiana," while others have a personal connection that requires a short paragraph. There's a list with these descriptions at the bottom of this page. Click here for more barn photos.

Barn Photo Descriptions
  

01       I photographed this barn in 1966, near the corner of Shaw and Cedar, across from Cal State University in Fresno. It's just about my favorite barn photo, but the building is long gone and the area is filed with restaurants and office building
02       At Willow and Nees Avenues, Clovis CA
03       Barn along Wellbarn Road, Auberry Valley
04       On Raymond-Knowles Road, Madera County CA
05       Madera county
06       On Santa Fe Avenue, about 1 mile south of LeGrand, Merced County
07       Along Cunningham Road between Highway 140 and LeGrand
08       Near LeGrand Avenue and White Rock Road, Merced County
09       Barn near Volcano, Amador County CA

22       Hornitos, Mariposa County CA
23       Triangle Road,  Mariposa County
24       Elliott Barn, Highway 49, Mariposa County - William (Bill) Elliott, who died at age 97 in 2014, grew up on the property where this barn is located, and provided the following information in May 2005: "The picture you have is what we called the "back horse barn" with the tack room at the right end. If you take a picture of the front here is the general layout. On the left is the "front horse barn" which has a covered access to that tack room. The center, high part, of the barn is the hay and feed section with access to both horse barns. To the right of the hay barn was sort of a buggy and repair shop barn but we used it as a garage. A lot of those old barns were built pretty much the same." In 2013 a historical marker commemorating Elliott Corner was placed in the area.
25       Highway 140 and Triangle Road, northeast of Mariposa
26       Highway 140, Cathey's Valley, Mariposa County
27       Cathey's Valley
28       Barn at Highway 49 and Pegleg Road - The house I grew up in is about 100 yards behind this barn, so I saw it many times, walked by it, but never went inside. As far as I know, it was not in use back then (1945-1957) and does not appear to be now. You can see a corner of our garage through the trees near the lower left of the photo
