Darigold Art

Astoria, Oregon ~ May 17, 2011

I love finding art in unexpected places, and this time I found it on the side of the old Darigold building next to the train station. The building is slated for demolition at the end of May. Please see yesterday's post for further info and to learn what Ron Walker is looking for before the building disappears.

Here is another picture of the Darigold building that I took last May and posted in June. I know more about it now than I did a year ago. Let's hope we can get more and more stories so Ron Walker's project of preserving the history of this historic structure will be filled with fascinating stories and tidbits of Astoria's past. You can help by e-mailing Ron at riverwalker1946@charter.net or phoning him at (503) 440-3506.

It seems that Blogger may be having some trouble accepting comments. PLEASE copy your comment before you post it, and if it doesn't show up immediately, copy it to e-mail and send it to me at oregontapir@yahoo.com. Thank you! I have no idea what the problem is.

You have a great eye for natural art, Sheryl. Blogger was down some time last week and many lost a number of day's posts, but I've not had issues the past two days.

You mentioned the glitch in Blogger's comment utility.. I noticed that quite a bit last week or so... seems to be working again! I, too, like finding design and 'art' in unusual places and things.. good eye here.
