Sometimes fate has a way of showing me what to photograph. On a recent trip heading down 46 I had to use the facilities somewhere since my 44 year old bladder does not work as well as it used to. knowing the Fred Meijer Heartland Trail was nearby I stopped at a parking lot that had a restroom I could use. After using the well appointed deluxe outhouse and my mind could think of other things beside reliving my bladder, it was then I noticed a huge building that had the words ” GENERAL BAG CORP.” painted on the sides. I guess one thing that catches my attention is a building with giant lettering painted on the sides. It means it is usually old and historic, but it also is helpful since it tells me something about the buildings. And the bag building was no exception, after googling Edmore General Bag Building I found and Article about it HERE and how the DDA in Edmore wants to re-purpose it into shops for the community. I hope they are successful, I like seeing old buildings being reused not only because it is a wonderful way to connect with the history of town but it just seems wasteful to knock down a building and build new ones.
PS. when I am traveling the back roads it’s nice to find a bathroom when I need one. to bad the world famous two story outhouse was not functional and accessible it would have been nice to use some historic facilities.
