Larimore, ND pop. 1312

Doug and I took a little ride this past weekend to the teeming metropolis of Larimore, ND, pop. 1312, to see what we could see.

I warned Doug that as soon as we entered this little town, we would be noticed, just because we were there. And I was right.

It was actually more photogenic than I expected.

While photographing this building, which use to be a bank, a man approached me, pulled out his camera, and also started photographing it! He was the one who told me it used to be a bank building.



And that he was actually there visiting his grandmother, decided to get a photo of this for her, because his grandfather use to be the bank president. He said his grandfather was in the bank in 1930 when it was held up!



And I liked the look of this railing on the side.



And then while I was standing in the middle of the street, a van pulled up along side me, and a man leaned out saying, "I was just thinking about how photogenic this little town is!" Or so he claimed!!!!!! But then he continued to circle around several more times, and we became suspicious of him, although maybe he was just being suspicious of us. . .

ETA: Oh, WOW! I just wanted to add, I just made this from my SIL, Maria's, blog tonight, and it is delicious! I also foresee leftovers, which is gooooooood!

I just love all the old brick detail. I also know what you mean about those small towns where the only excitement is watching the traffic lights change. Visitors are a treat!

Love the photos of the old bank, especially the metal fence. They don't make them like this anymore . . .

I'm glad you enjoyed the recipe!

Love all the details and that railing to. Sounds like you got a lot of attention just hanging out there. You should have taken a photo of the guy driving around lol!

I love to go to little towns and take pictures of the old buildings. They just don't make them like they used to, do they?
