Greetings from Illinois!

(Top left, clockwise) You'll find plenty of this beautiful, turn of this century work in this state - this building is in Litchfield. ::: Illinois is big on agriculture, and there's something about a farm that is soothing. ::: Gas tanks lined up at an antique motorcycle swap meet in Woodstock. ::: A great bumper sticker. ::: Chi-cah-go!
