Harwood and Argusville, ND

One afternoon I drove from Fargo to Grand Forks along Old Highway 81. Lots of small towns and farms were there to catch my attention.

Abandoned

This weekend it was suggested that I should visit this farm between Langdon and Vang, ND. So my wife and I drove up to check the place out. The highlight of the trip was the 1950s-era GMC military 6×6 truck that had been converted into a snow plow, but it didn’t look like it had been run for a while.

Little Star Theatre – Milton, ND (part 3)

Historic

Initially, The Star Electric Theatre showed silent films using live piano, player piano, and a phonograph to provide music accompaniment until 1931 when it was remodeled, complete with a sound system that could play “talkies”. “Parlor, Bedroom & Bath” was the first sound movie shown at the theatre, which played movies until 1974. Updated projectors were installed in 1987 for Milton’s centennial celebration but haven’t been used since then.

Throughout the years, as people gave their performances on stage, it became tradition that they would sign the back of the curtain. More recently that tradition changed to cast members signing a poster with the details of their performance.
