Old Farm - Monson MA

Route 20 in Monson is pretty ugly. K-Marts, McDonald's and similar blights infect the area. An old farm, of perhaps ten acres is being bullyed by the faceless progress. It's fought the good fight for years but the land butchers are surveying the area. Could a WalMart be coming ?

A few years ago someone attempted to move one of the old buildings off the property. You can see an "I" beam sticking through a wall in this photograph. The building has been jacked up and waits for its furture.

The above photographs were done with the Rolleiflex SL35M equipped with a 50mm f1.8 Schneider Kreuznach Xenon.


The barn was once painted red. Areas shielded from the weather still retain a bit of the color.

There was once a retail store on the property. There are remnants of the enterprise inside the white and blue building.
