I like photographing old barns and advertising murals. So naturally, I love this old barn with the New Era Potato Chips logo painted on the silo. New Era was founded in Detroit in the 1920s. They had four plants throughout the Midwest and was one of the dominant potato chips in the region. During the ’70s potato chips sales declined. The company was bought out by Frito Lay and closed in 1981. The barn and silo near Portland still remain as a reminder of the long gone Detroit company.
P.S. I like how there slogan in “Scientifically Processed” I wonder how that would work out for them today, it sounds like the opposite of Organic.
