"Prairie View School" Illinois<br />
<br />
I was driving in rural Fayette County, Illinois during the Christmas holidays when I happened upon this abandoned schoolhouse sitting at the edge of a frozen field. The wood sign hanging above the door read, "Prairie View School, Dist. No. 112." It was built in the 1880's and served well past the turn of the century. The conifer tree standing beside the door looks like it was decorated with snow for the holidays and shadows on the side of the building indicate that a big shade tree sits nearby. Little color was present in the scene so it was well suited for black and white photography. I love this photograph.
