American barns seem to all have a genetic leaning (sometimes literally) that make them universally similar, no matter what corner of the country they pop up in.
And they often make great subjects, especially when they are run-down. But sometimes there are differences. Many of the barns in that part of the country have slatted sides that open up to facilitate the drying of tobacco leaves.
Ah, yes... I see that! And the old barns in Puyallup have the cupolas that facilitate the kiln drying of the hops. Industry re-morphs the barn idea from region to region, making travel so much more interesting in rural America, doesn't it? As long as we can keep those barns standing. I wonder how many artists and photographers have had an idea of recording history through barns across the world.
