The Kokomo Gas tower. I took the first photo a few days before it was imploded, the second shot shows what is left. This tower was almost 400ft tall and could be seen for miles on a clear day. As kids whenever we went on trips we always tried to be the first to spot the tower as we were comming home. Most people in our town miss this old thing, it's funny how we get attached to and sentimental about things.

Lucky capture. Looks a lot like the grain silos we used to have a lot of. I went for a very, very long driveinto the country, looking for things to take pictures of, mainly I was looking for old barns, silos, etc. I hadn't realized how many of them have been torn down and housing developments have taken their place. Made me kinda homesick.......the old days are disappearing, and progress is taking over.....Was hard to find any old homesteads in my area.......sigh.....

Thank you Imaginat! We have the same thing here, we are erasing our history.


Happy Holidays!

It's kinda sad to see old landmarks being removed. Great captures of time and memories.

Both are great shots. You have done well in capturing a historical event in your community. The color, clarity, and exposure are great. Good work.

Nice to have photos of our memories.

I was born and raised in California. North, south, middle you name it. We made many trips down I-99. I hadn't realized there was a landmark that would bring back memories until I saw it four years ago on my way from San Francisco back home. The old cement factory right on the road. When I saw it, I knew we were almost home. I hadn't realized it had had such an effect on me.

Great capture of both shots of your landmark.
